NATO will Afghanistan Evakuierungen wegen steigender Kritik beschleunigen

By Ninian Carter

August 20, 2021 - Laut NATO sollen bereits mehr als 18.000 Menschen aus Afghanistan mit Flugzeugen evakuiert worden sein, seit die Taliban die Hauptstadt Kabul erobert haben.

Thousands of people, desperate to flee Afghanistan, are surrounding Kabul airport, despite the Taliban telling people without legal travel documents to return home.

NATO claim more than 18,000 people have been flown out of Afghanistan since its capital Kabul, came under Taliban control on August 15.

The speed at which the Taliban conquered Afghanistan, as the U.S. and coalition partners withdrew forces, has taken many countries by surprise – leading to widespread criticism levelled at U.S. President Biden, NATO and many other Western powers, accusing them of a chaotic, unprepared exit strategy.
