The Taliban did not allow hundreds of Americans to return


Desk report:  Taliban fighters fired blank shots to mark the end of a 20-year war on Monday night when an American-carrying plane crashed into Afghan skies. Although it was possible to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan, it was not possible to remove many US citizens. A U.S. military official says Taliban members have prevented Americans from entering the airport. He gave this information on Tuesday. Earlier, Marine General Frank McKenzie, the head of the US Central Command, told a news conference at the Pentagon on Monday that there were still 100 to 250 Americans left in Afghanistan. They could not reach the airport or they could not get on the plane. Alex Plitas, a U.S. military official, was involved in evacuating people from Afghanistan. He wrote in a tweet that the Taliban did not allow the Americans to enter the airport at the last minute. He has contacts with many such people.He said the Taliban had not cooperated in ending the evacuation process. The Taliban has refused to cooperate outside the airport gate.”We have not been able to rescue our citizens from there,” said Alex Plitas. We don’t know where they are. ” It’s not just Americans who are trapped. Many Afghans with visas have also been detained by the Taliban. Alex Plitas has also published pictures of such incidents. In a tweet with the photo, he wrote that people with US passports were detained outside the Hamid Karzai International Airport. U.S. officials present tried to do everything possible, but at the end of the day, the effort was futile.
