As Sayliyah Army Base (Arabic: ? ) or Camp As Sayliyah was a United States Army base located in Al Sailiya, a suburb outside Doha, Qatar. U.S. Central Command used the base to preposition material bound for use in Iraq and Afghanistan; it was the largest U.S. Army prepositioning site in the world.[1] It stored enough equipment for a U.S. Army armored brigade: more than 150 M-1 Abrams tanks, 116 Bradley fighting vehicles, and 112 other armored personnel carriers.[1][2] The base was established in the year 2000[3] and closed in June 2021 with its mission moved to Area Support Group-Jordan.[4]
