Amid the growth of critics of the West’s actions toward the Afghan crisis, the alliance has promised to increase the efforts on the evacuation twice.
National Security Advisor of the United States Jake Sullivan said that the U.S. is afraid of the terrorist attack from the Islamic State during the evacuation of its citizens and allies from Afghanistan.
On August 15, the Taliban militants seized Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said that he had left the country to avoid bloodshed as the Taliban entered the capital Kabul. Members of the diplomatic missions of the Western countries and their staff consisting of locals did not evacuate and they stay in the capital airport, where chaos is observed.
The mass media reported that up to 40 people died in the crowd and during the shooting. Later, it was reported that 12 people died in the chaos at the Kabul Airport according to the Taliban.
Besides, the UN secret document states that the Talibans activate the search of people, who, according to them, worked for the U.S. and NATO forces, including among the crowd at the Kabul Airport.
