What Is Going On In Afghanistan News?
The Taliban's Fall of Kabul
The fall of Kabul by the Taliban left a lot of people stunned. The human tragedy that unfolded at the Kabul airport were filmed and photographed. The Taliban have tried to show a new face that is more progressive and less radical than when they ruled the country.
The situation has been in Taliban power for seven weeks. The Afghan economy has been stagnant since the Taliban took over in August due to the freeze on international aid and Afghan assets held abroad. Many NGOs that the health system relied on until then are short of money or have stopped operations because of it.
What Next for Afghanistan
The media has highlighted the plight of Afghan people at airports and the US military, but it is not clear what will happen next. The US is concerned that Al-Qaeda may be able to regroup in Afghanistan, which will likely lead to the country being back to where it was before the war started.
The Taliban and the U.S
It is absolutely amazing. President Biden decided to implement the agreement that was made by President Trump and the Taliban to withdraw all U.S. forces from Afghanistan by May 1st.
The Children's Hospital in Afghanistan
Activists are concerned about the safety of women in Afghanistan due to reports that the Taliban is forcing changes to how they dress and work. Many Afghan citizens told the British Broadcasting Corporation that the next few months are going to be difficult and they don't know if sending children to modern schools is possible. We're sorry to hear that you're going through a tough time.
It would be great to talk to someone about how you are feeling. You can call Childline if you don't feel you can speak to someone, but you can also call a trusted adult. 11
Helicopters for Air Strike Mission in Afghanistan
The Afghan government deployed Special Operators to several areas in recent weeks to shore up the areas against Taliban attacks, but now many of the elite Afghan forces are tired and are not able to fight anymore. The U.S. deployed a small number of helicopter pilots and maintainers to Afghanistan to fly manned airstrike missions. In case of a manned fighter jet going down, the helicopter will be used to recover personnel.
A Rescuer in Afghanistan
The NY Post spoke with a rescuer at the Hamid Karzai International Airport. Jariko Denman is a former Army Ranger who is trying to get former Afghan colleagues and their families out of Afghanistan.
The Taliban's Return
The battle between the US and the Taliban lasted until February last year. They ended the war and made an agreement. They agreed that the Taliban should not use Afghanistan as a gathering place.
They have to make peace with the government of Afghanistan. All foreign soldiers had to leave within two years. The Taliban is returning after almost all the military left Afghanistan.
