Taliban blame the US for ‘chaos’ at Kabul airport

Responding to the chaotic situation at the Kabul airport, a senior Taliban official has held the US responsible for the panic situation.

Amir Khan Muttaqi on Sunday accused the West of seeking “to create panic and chaos” in Afghanistan, following the Taliban’s takeover of the capital city Kabul.
According to the BBC report, the Taliban official claimed that the Kabul airport is the only place where there is chaos at the moment and he alleged that people are being shot and killed there.

He further said that the US was trying to hide its defeat by creating an “evacuation drama”.

Meanwhile, amid growing calls to extend evacuations beyond the end of August, the US has enrolled commercial airlines to help with the evacuation efforts.

As per reports, aircraft from Delta, United Airlines, and others will help fly those who already evacuated from Afghanistan to final destinations. The planes will not fly into Kabul, but will instead be used to help transfer passengers transiting in third countries.
