Assad Air Force Base was built in the 1980s and was taken over by the United States after the 2003 Iraq war.
At one time, it was the largest base of US troops in western Iraq. In December 2011, the US formally handed over the command of the base to the Iraqi government. However, in 2014, the US military deployed forces to the base again in the name of fighting against Islamic state.
