The western nations have warned of terror attack at Kabul airport and urged people to evacuate from Kabul after a threat received by the ISIL (ISIS) armed group.
The western troops have strongly urged people to leave Taliban-controlled Afghanistan before August 31.
New warnings have emerged from Western capitals about a possible threat from Afghanistan’s Islamic State group affiliate, after Taliban’s freeing of prisoners during their blitz across the country.
Already, military cargo planes leaving Kabul airport have launched flares to disrupt any potential missile fire.
On Thursday, the British Armed Forces Minister James Heappey stated ”very, very credible reporting of an imminent attack” at the airport, possibly within “hours”.
“there is an appetite by many in the queue to take their chances, but the reporting of this threat is very credible indeed and there is a real imminence to it”.
“There is every chance that as further reporting comes in, we may be able to change the advice again and process people anew but there’s no guarantee of that,” he further added.
However, the Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid has denied the news of attack.
“It’s not correct,” he wrote in a text message when asked about the warnings. He further did not elaborate.
Earlier, the Taliban declared that the war is over as they are going to regain authority after 20 years.
Many Afghan nationals crowded the Kabul airport along with foreign citizens to leave the country.
After taking control of the majority of provincial capitals, the Taliban surrounded Kabul, demanding peaceful transfer of power.
Later on, President Ghani fled the country and paved the way for new regime.
In his message on social media, Ghani said he had left the country to avoid the ‘flood of bloodshed’.
“Today, I came across a hard choice; I should stand to face the armed Taliban who wanted to enter the palace or leave the dear country that I dedicated my life to protecting and protecting the past twenty years. If there were still countless countrymen martyred and they would face the destruction and destruction of Kabul city, the result would have been a big human disaster in this six million city,” he explained.
Ghani further said that he would always continue to serve his nation with an intellectual moment and a plan to develop it.
