200 US troops leave air base at Jacobabad
JACOBABAD: American troops are being withdrawn from Jacobabad Airbase after a three-year stay. Two hundred troops reportedly flew back to the United States on Sunday.
The government had allowed the US to use its Lal Shahbaz Air Base at Jacobabad three years ago to back the invasion of Afghanistan. During this period, the US sent hundreds of troops and tonnes of ammunition to this airbase on the way to Afghanistan. Now there are around 100 American troops left at the airbase. The frequency of US aircraft flights has also been reduced and their flights are rarely seen in the skies over Jacobabad. ppi
