Iraqi military official said Wednesday that the French troops in a U.S.-led military coalition fighting the ISIS terrorist group have left Iraq.
a spokesperson for the Iraqi army, Abdel-Karim Khalaf, said: "Their departure comes under agreements conducted with the Iraqi government."
"The U.S.-led coalition had left an air base in Iraq's al-Qaim area near the border with Syria, and the Iraqi army took over the base after the coalition's withdrawal," he added.
The U.S.-led alliance has supported Iraqi forces in a yearslong campaign against ISIS militants in the country.
In recent weeks, some military bases hosting the coalition forces in Iraq have come under attack, where no group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
In January, the Iraqi parliament approved a resolution obliging the government to end the presence of foreign troops linked to the anti-ISIS alliance.
The move came after a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad killed Qassem Soleimani, a top Iranian commander, and Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, the Hashd deputy head.
