Kabul airport Suicide attack

As expected that things could go out of control after the US military withdrawal, and Taliban takeover. Suicide attacks outside the Kabul airport have been carried out just a few hours before. Resulting in a bloodbath among desperate citizens attempting to evacuate and producing havoc in the final days of the Western airlift of its allies

Reports suggest that a gunman was also seen to be carrying out an open fire at the main entrance of Kabul airport.

As per the recent reports and the confirmation by the Taliban official, at least 13 people have lost their lives after the two deadly explosions outside the Kabul airport. Though it is yet to investigate and confirmed, there was no immediate reaction on the blast of any faction taking responsibility for the attack but the US authorities and reports say that attacks have been carried out by the ISIS bomber.

An Afghan journalist’s video footage on the internet revealed a pile of blood-soaked dead in a street surrounded by debris. The man who was filming it was sobbing.

Several US soldiers have also been killed in explosions near the Kabul airport.

One explosion occurred near the airport’s Abbey Gate, while the other occurred near the neighboring Baron Hotel, according to Pentagon spokesman John Kirby. At least one of the explosions seemed to be the result of a suicide bomber, according to two US sources.

The city’s main emergency hospital confirmed that along with 13 deaths at least 60 people are injured of which few are in critical condition.

How the explosion took place?

The explosion occurred amid masses forming outside of the airport in the hopes of escaping in an airlift that the US claims will finish by Tuesday, following the Taliban’s rapid control of the country.

A witness, Jamshed, said that he went to the airport with the hope to get a US visa and move there from Afghanistan.

“Amid the crowd, there was a really strong and powerful suicide strike. Many people were slain, including Americans, and many more were injured “he stated.

Four US troops are said to be killed

According to the sources at least four US troops are said to be killed and a few are wounded as well in a blast at the Kabul airport on Thursday.

In a statement, Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby claimed that “a number” of US service members were killed in the incident, although he did not specify how many. Others were wounded.

Taliban blames the US for security in the area

The Taliban condemned the deadly bombs that occurred near Kabul airport on Thursday, claiming that the region was under US military control.

Taliban Security Force

People of the Taliban faction argued that the explosions took place in the area where US forces were responsible for the security.

United Nations (UN) reaction

On Monday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will convene a meeting with the UN envoys for the United Kingdom, France, the United States, China, and Russia – the permanent, veto-wielding members of the Security Council – to discuss the situation in Afghanistan.

Does Kabul’s attack a hindrance in the evacuation process?

Despite the suicide attack on Kabul airport, the evacuation process continues.

In the last 12 days, Western countries have evacuated approximately 100,000 people, mainly Afghans who assisted them. However, they admit that many more would be left behind as a result of President Joe Biden’s order to withdraw all soldiers by August 31.

The remaining troops will be withdrawn in the final days of the airlift, which means the mass rescue of civilians could be in its final days or possibly hours. Some European countries, including Canada, have already suspended airlift.

The UK continues its evacuation process. Despite an attack on the capital’s airport, Boris Johnson says the UK will continue to evacuate people from Afghanistan.

US allies not happy

Countries allied to the US such as Canada and Norway not happy with the hasty decision of the US withdrawing before Aug 31. US allies are publicly lamenting the Biden and its administration’s hasty decisions of withdrawal.

Disappointing remarks of Norway stating that it was unable to evacuate anyone else since the airport’s doors were closed.

General Wayne Eyre, the acting chief of Canada’s defense staff said “we wish that we were able to stay a little longer and rescue everyone out there”. He further confirmed that Canadian authorities would no longer be able to continue the airlift, claiming the withdrawal of 3,700 Canadians and Afghans.

The question remains that will there be any hindrance in the evacuation process? Will the predicament of Afghanistan ameliorate or continue to deteriorate?
