Gulf News

COPENHAGEN: Denmark said on Thursday it would pull around 60 special forces from Iraq, as most areas once controlled by Daesh have been liberated.

The gradual pullback will conclude in late autumn, the Defence Ministry said in a statement.

Denmark will still have around 180 military personnel posted to the Al Assad airbase in Iraq, and contribute to radar surveillance as part of an international coalition fighting the Islamist militant group.
