KABUL: The United States has handed over Bagram Air Base to the Afghan army after 20 years.
According to a foreign news agency, the US military has handed over Bagram Airbase to the Afghan army. For almost 20 years, the US military has controlled Bagram Air Base, which has been a major center of attacks against Taliban and al-Qaeda leaders. The U.S. military handed over control of Bagram Air Base to the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces this morning, but Afghan officials say it will be handed over to the Afghan government at a ceremony on Saturday.
Earlier, US forces were disposing of their non-essential equipment at Bagram Air Base while loading and unloading it on several trucks daily, according to people who bought the scrap from the base. Is worth millions of dollars, but locals believe it should have been given to Afghan forces instead of being destroyed.
