Camp Shorabak (formerly Camp Bastion) is a former British Army airbase, located northwest of the city of Lashkargah in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
The camp was situated in a remote desert area, far from population centres.
The camp was built by the British Army in 2005-06, and on 27 October 2014 the British Army handed over control to the Afghan Ministry of Defense.
Between 2005 and October 2014 it was the logistics hub for International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) operations in Helmand during the War in Afghanistan and Operation Herrick,
and it was capable of accommodating over 32,000 people.
It was the largest British overseas military camp built since the Second World War.
The base was also home to troops from other states, including the United States and Denmark.
Shorabak contained the Afghan National Army (ANA) camp (also called Camp Shorabak), and also held Camp Leatherneck until 2014.
The Taliban took control of Afghanistan in July-August 2021, and the camp is now occupied by the Taliban.
