Military planes evacuating Afghans amid fears of ISIS missile attacks

evacuees from Afghanistan

Military planes evacuating Afghans drop flares and battlegrounds amid fears of ISIS missile attacks, as 20 people, including a child, were killed at Kabul airport in a stampede to flee the Taliban before the American lifeline ended.

At least 20 Afghan civilians were killed in the past seven days in and around Kabul airport, and the situation took a turn for the worse, as four Afghan women were shot to death on Saturday. Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul has been a focal point for thousands trying to flee the Taliban.

The Department of Defense is looking at creating "hubs" to deal with Afghan refugees in Pakistan and Turkey. However, Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said Afghans fleeing the Taliban may have to escape on their own. This comes amid fears of an August 31 rescue deadline, when The United States is believed to be withdrawing its remaining forces

There cannot be 900 British troops in Afghanistan without the logistical support of the 6,000 US troops in Kabul, so they will have to finish the evacuation before that point to allow them to escape from Afghanistan safely.
