Situation in Afghanistan

The Taliban intensified their attacks in Afghanistan after the failure of inter-Afghan negotiations and the US decision to withdraw its troops from the country.

In June, Taliban militants took over dozens of counties, then switched to provincial administrative centers.

According to local sources, the Kabul International Airport is currently the only exit from the country.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country on Sunday after Taliban forces launched an offensive on the capital, Kabul.

The head of the Supreme Council for National Reconciliation in Afghanistan, Abdullah Abdullah, confirmed the information in a video message.

According to the UN, in the first half of 2021, 1,659 civilians were killed in Afghanistan, and over 1,000 in the last month.

Afghanistan’s Independent Human Rights Commission announced that some 1 million civilians fled their homes between early May and August.

According to the UN, 18 million Afghans are in need of humanitarian aid.
