All US forces have left Bagram Air Base, as US withdrawal from Afghanistan nears completion

The last US troops have left Bagram Air Base, according to a US defense official, marking the end of the American presence at the sprawling compound that became the center of military power in Afghanistan, writes CNN.

The full withdrawal of US troops from the country is not complete yet but expected very soon.
