People dying trying to flee the country
Thousands of Afghan citizens have gathered at the airport in Kabul and want to leave the country fearing the Taliban. So far many lives have been lost in this effort. At least 170 Afghan civilians and 13 US soldiers were killed in a suicide bombing on Thursday. Within 36 hours, the US retaliated with a drone strike on ISIS-K targets, saying the main conspirator of the attack had been killed. Issuing an alert for another suicide attack on Saturday, the US advised soldiers and civilians to stay away from the airport.
Appeal to people to work for progress
Last week, the Taliban asked Afghan imams during the first Friday prayers to counter negative reports about the terror group. The Taliban is appealing to the people not to leave the country. The group said that the Imams should encourage our countrymen to work for the progress of the country and not try to leave the country. Imams should respond to the ‘negative propaganda of the enemy’.
