Taliban: At least 40 people killed in Kabul airport shooting & stampede since Monday

A Taliban commander at the Kabul airport said that at least 40 people were killed in shooting by the foreign forces as well as due to a stampede since Monday.

According to an Afghan media report, the Taliban commander said, that people should not be deceived by fake rumors about traveling abroad and asked people to avoid coming to the airport.

The Taliban said that they are making all efforts to bring lasting peace and progress in Afghanistan.

Mohibullah Hekmat, the Taliban commander at the airport said, “They shouldn’t be (hanging onto) airplanes of the foreigners, 30 to 40 people were killed and wounded in the airport yesterday (Monday 16th August), they should remain in their homes, there will be no problem for them,”

The US and other Western countries resumed their flights to evacuate their citizens and Afghan allies from the nation. Commercial flights are still stopped.

Crowds of Afghans were still forming around Kabul’s international airport on Tuesday, the 2nd day of Taliban rule in the capital city.

Reports said people of all ages, both women and men, some without passports, are seeking to board aircraft and evacuate the country.

“They said that many people have left without visas and passports, therefore we came here tonight,” said a Kabul resident.

Large numbers of women are attempting to flee, saying the desperate situation in the country is compelling them to go.

“See the condition of the children, they are thirsty and hungry, may Allah destroy Ashraf Ghani,” said a resident of Kandahar.
