Taliban beats and gases Australian citizens trying to leave Afghanistan

Stephen Dziedzic, ABC’s Asia Pacific correspondent shared that the Taliban guards throwing gas bombs on the crowds and shooting on people before they can reach the airport.

Australian prime minister Scott Morrisson has conceded that “Operations of Australian Defense Force or others who are there beyond the airport are not possible,” and that “They are not able to be undertaken in any way by the Australian Defense Forces — to do so would put them at great risk with no commensurate benefit.”

U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman recently said, “We have seen reports that the Taliban, contrary to their public statements and their commitments to our government, are blocking Afghans who wish to leave the country from reaching the airport.”

She also came out and said the administration “expects” the Taliban to allow all third-country nationals, Afghans, or Americans to be allowed safe passage and that “without harassment.” Some have criticized that Biden administration on whether he intends to do anything about it.

An official for NATO and an “official” for the Taliban — who refused to be identified by name — have reportedly conceded that 12 people have died as a result of gunfire or stampedes in and around the airport.
