UK Shuts Kabul Airport Gates Few Hours To Taliban Deadline

According to a report, the United Kingdom has shut the gates to their evacuation point in the Kabul airport. This is coming few hours to the deadline issued by the Taliban terrorist group.

As reported by Ben Wallace, about 1,000 Brits and Afghans are already inside the Kabul airport and will be the last set to be evacuated today.

According to the Defense Secretary, about 150 Brits will be left behind in Afghanistan after the airport gates were sealed this morning.

The closure of the gate means that desperate Afghans and any Brits who fall off the radar will not be on RAF flight out of Afghanistan.

Wallace said that it is unfortunate that not all people will be evacuated from Afghanistan. He added that the estimated number of Brits who will be left behind is 150 and the number may change.

Mr. Wallace said that from tomorrow, the airlift would move to phase two and concentrate mainly on the 1,000 soldiers and the remaining officials.

Western forces are expected to get out of Afghanistan before the deadline issued by the Taliban group.
