The US in Kabul has urged its citizens present outside the Hamid Karzai International airport to immediately move to a safer place from there. The officials have also cautioned citizens against travel to the airport. The US Embassy in Kabul has said that those who are present at the Abbey Gate. East Gate and North Gate of the airport, they should leave immediately. In a security alert, the embassy said, "Because of security threats outside the gates of Kabul airport, we are advising U.S citizens to avoid traveling to the airport and to avoid airport gates at this time unless you receive individual instructions from a U.S. government representative to do so."
Significantly, the security of Kabul airport has been completely taken over by the US military. After the Taliban took over Kabul on 15 August, a large crowd of people leaving the country gathered at the airport. Due to this, the rescue planes had to face trouble in landing and flying. Due to this chaos, the movement of planes from the airport was stopped for some time.
In one video, the people were seen hanging on the landing gear of the US Air Force aircraft. In this footage, some people also seen falling after the American plane reached the air. To stop this chaos, American soldiers even opened fire at the airport. After this, the US had investigated how the crowd had reached so close to the plane that not only the aircraft but also the safety of American soldiers threatened. Now, the US has taken the security of this airport in its own hands. However, people from not only America but also from other countries are present outside the airport.
