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 as The New York Times reported.
“Taliban militants are intensifying a search for people they believe worked with U.S. and NATO forces, including among the crowds of Afghans at Kabul’s airport, and have threatened to kill or arrest their family members if they cannot find them, according to a confidential United Nations document,” the message says.
The document, from a U.N. threat-assessment adviser, states that there are a few reports that the Taliban has a list of people who should be questioned and punished.
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.
As we reported, as of April 2021 (until the last active offensive of the Taliban militants), the war in Afghanistan claimed the lives of over 71,000 civilians.
It was reported that the air space over Kabul is closed for a flight of any civilian planes; only military aviation can fly there.
