The death toll in the terrorist attacks in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport area, rose to 170. The Biden administration has been at the center of criticism from both Republican and Democratic party members since it approved the decision to withdraw US forces from Afghanistan.
The death toll in the terrorist attacks in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport area, rose to 170. 13 American military personnel were also killed in the attacks. British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab announced that 3 British citizens, including 1 child, died in the attack.
After the bomb attacks, it was reported that the evacuation of foreigners and Afghan citizens in the country resumed yesterday. Despite the continuing threat of terrorism, images of people waiting outside the airport were broadcast on Tolo TV, the local television channel in Afghanistan.
However, it is stated that the number of people waiting is quite less compared to the previous days. Thousands of Afghans could not leave the country, despite their documents, either because they could not reach the airport or because they were not taken inside the airport by the Taliban or soldiers. Some of them were people who lost their lives in the terrorist attack with their documents in their hands.
Yesterday, most countries outside the United States announced that they had completed their evacuation operations. The European Union (EU) countries ended the evacuations they started in Afghanistan, where the Taliban took control, as of August 16, early due to the security problems in the country.
