US forces leave Kuwait after Iran attack

NEWS DIGEST – Amidst the rising tension in the Middle East region, Kuwait’s defense minister said it has received a letter from the Commander in Chief of a US military camp in Kuwait “declaring imminent withdrawal of all US military forces in three days,” state news agency KUNA said on Wednesday.

“Receiving such (a) letter from Camp Arifjan was unexpected and we are communicating with U.S. Department of Defense for more details and information,” KUNA reported the minister as saying.

Meanwhile, Kuwait’s government says that a Wednesday report of a U.S. troop withdrawal is incorrect and that the state news agency was hacked.
