Following its surprise decision last week to withdraw its troops from Syria, the first U.S. military warehouse near the Iraqi border was evacuated on Friday.

According to a reliable local source, the U.S. forces vacated a warehouse in Malikiye in the northeast al-Hasakah province.

Hummer armored vehicles and trucks from the 400-square-meter (4,306 square foot) warehouse -- around which some 50 U.S. troops were based -- were sent to Iraq.

The U.S. troops based around the warehouse also left for Iraq.
