Taliban Renames Country Islamic Emirate Of Afghanistan As US Evacuates Citizens, Others

The Taliban who recently seized power in Afghanistan has renamed it the ‘Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’.

The media had been filled with reports that many Afghans in a bid to leave the Middle East country had ran alongside a US military plane as it taxied on the runway while several clung to the side as the jet took off with Senior US military officials.

This online highlights the chaos the country is presently rocked with.

The US-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 that ousted the insurgents from power did not succeed in completely removing the Taliban’s who had ran the country in the late 1990s.

According to CNN, hundreds of people poured onto the tarmac at Kabul’s international airport, desperately seeking a route out of Afghanistan on Monday after the Taliban’s sudden seizure of power sparked a chaotic Western withdrawal and brought to a crashing end the United States’ two-decade mission in the country.

Speaking yesterday, US President Joe Biden had stated that his country cannot continue to fight a war that Afghanistan are not ready to fight.

According to the president, measures are been put in place to ensure the safe evacuation of US officials and those residents that have been of great help to the US.

He disclosed that additional troops would be deployed to secure the Kabul international airport.
