Kuwaiti facilities for the international coalition forces withdrawing from Iraq

Baghdad, The Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Qabas stated that Kuwait provides facilities and logistical support to the international coalition forces withdrawn from Iraq, which take Kuwait as a transit station to return to their countries.

The newspaper quoted official sources as saying that: The forces who finally returned to their country after crossing Kuwait got all the support and facilities after the announcement of some foreign countries present in Iraq to withdraw their forces temporarily due to the tension in the region against the background of the killing of the Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.

Among the countries that confirmed the withdrawal of some of their soldiers from Iraq and their temporary transfer to Kuwait were Canada and Germany.

In a related development, the newspaper quoted British Ambassador Michael Davenport as saying that: his country continues its military presence in the region, and it is committed to the international coalition against (ISIS), and is not considering withdrawing its forces from Iraq.

Since January 3, the region witnessed an escalation following the killing of General Soleimani and two leaders in the Iraqi popular crowd near Baghdad International Airport with an American strike, and the Iranian response to it was later fired by several missiles at American bases in Iraq.
