The withdrawal of the troops from the combined base of Camp Leatherneck and Camp Bastion was carried out over 24 hours with flights back and forth between Helmand and Kandahar Air Field, the aviation hub for southern Afghanistan.

The base closure in the province of Helmand was one of the largest operations in the winding down of the international combat mission in Afghanistan, 13 years after the toppling of the Taliban regime, Reuters said.
