From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) installations in Afghanistan used during the War in Afghanistan from 2001–2021. This list encompasses installations used by the International Security Assistance Force from 2001 to 2014 and then by the Resolute Support Mission after 2014. Included are airbases, forward operating bases, main operating bases, combat outposts, firebases, and patrol bases used by NATO forces across the six regional commands (renamed Train Advise Assist Commands after 2014): Regional Command Capital, Regional Command East, Regional Command North, Regional Command South, Regional Command Southwest, and Regional Command West.

History[edit]

After 30 September 2013, there were only five sites used by the United Kingdom in Helmand Province including Camp Bastion (the main British base, closed 26 Oct 2014),[1] MOB Price,[2] MOB Lashkar Gah, PB Lashkar Gah Durai and OP Sterga 2 (last base outside Bastion, closed May 2014).[3] After July 2021, all bases outside of Kabul were closed or transferred to the Afghan government. Some military infrastructure remained in Kabul to secure the U.S. embassy, the international zone, and Hamid Karzai International Airport.[4]

Regional Command Capital[edit]

Regional Command Capital includes the province of Kabul and is headquartered at Camp KAIA.[5]
