After a buildup to thwart Iran, U.S. troops begin to leave the Middle East

The U.S. military began attracting a small number of troops from the Middle East after concluding that the threat of reprisals from Iran or its delegates has diminished, military officials said.

About 1,000 combat troops that had deployed in Kuwait days after the January 3 strike that killed a great Iranian commander, General Gen. Qassem Soleimani, have left the region in the past two weeks, officials said. Another 2,000 members of the same brigade are expected to leave the region in the coming weeks, officials said.
