US forces pull out of key Syria base

AFP, Tal Tamr, Syria

US forces withdrew from a key base in northern Syria yesterday, a monitor said, two days before the end of a US-brokered truce to stem a Turkish attack on Kurdish forces in the region. An AFP correspondent saw more than 70 US armoured vehicles escorted by helicopters drive past the town of Tal Tamr carrying military equipment. Some flew the American stars-and-stripes flag as they made their way eastwards along a highway crossing the town, he said. The Syrian Observatory for the Human Rights said the convoy was evacuating the military base of Sarrin. It appeared to be heading to the town of Hassakeh, further east, said the Britain-based monitor, which relies on sources inside war-torn Syria for its information. Sarrin “is the largest American military base in the north of the country,” Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said. It is situated on the edges of a planned “safe zone” on the Syrian side of the border that Turkey wants to keep Kurdish forces away from its frontier, he explained. Sunday’s pullout was the fourth such withdrawal of American forces in a week and left Syria’s northern provinces of Aleppo and Raqa devoid of US troops, Abdel Rahman said.
