Australian Forces in the ME

Post by Sertorio » Fri Dec 22, 2017 12:23 pm

BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – Australia will pull out its ground forces and warplanes from Syria and Iraq by the end of this year, the country’s Defense Minister, Christopher Pyne announced on Friday.

“Following discussions with Iraq and with members of the international coalition, the Australian government has determined that we will bring home our six Super Hornet strike aircraft from the Middle East,” the Australian Defense Minister stated.

“It has been long. It has been arduous. It has been brutal. All of our personnel made an extraordinary contribution,” the minister concluded.

Australia has been one of the longest serving members of the Anti-ISIS Coalition that was founded by the U.S. in 2014.
