US, NEW YORK (ORDO NEWS) — US calls to immediately leave the vicinity of Kabul Airport due to a specific and credible threat.
US allies fear that thousands of people will be abandoned in Afghanistan after the 31 August deadline set by Washington for the withdrawal of its troops. The Taliban has warned that the consequences of an extension of the pullout will be dire.
After the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan on 15 August, many countries began evacuating their citizens, diplomats, and Afghans who had worked for them. Foreign troops are under pressure to wrap up the airlift mission by 31 August, as the Taliban warned they would not allow departures after that date.
The chaotic evacuation of allied forces and their Afghan partners from Kabul was thrown into disarray on Thursday after a string of suicide blasts near several airport gates caused numerous casualties among US forces and those trying to flee.
Over 170 people were reported dead and hundreds wounded in three attacks by Daesh-K suicide bombers.
