U.S. and Iraq to Start Talks on Phased Withdrawal of U.S. Coalition Forces

HeadlineJan 26, 2024

The United States and Iraq will start talks on phasing out the U.S.-led military coalition in Iraq. The U.S. has around 2,500 troops in Iraq who initially returned to the country in 2014 to combat Islamic State fighters. U.S. bases have since come under attack by Iran-affiliated groups, which have increased in light of the U.S. backing of Israel’s assault on Gaza.
