Taliban clash with protesters as militant group moves swiftly to enforce regime



Taliban moves swiftly to increase their rule across the region – the military group has clashed with protestors who are fighting back against the regime

The Taliban has continued to move swiftly to increase their rule across the region – the military group has clashed with protestors who are fighting back against the regime.

This comes as thousands of Afghan residents and foreign nationals rush to Kabul’s main airport in a desperate bid to escape the country before it’s too late.

As of today, the US military has so far evacuated around 7,000 people from Afghanistan after taking control of the airport earlier in the week.

It appears that the Taliban are cooperating with the evacuation efforts but there are fears that this could change very quickly.

Ned Price from the US State Department stated that the America’s rescue efforts are continuing.

We are also hearing reports that the Taliban is forcing Afghan residents to stay inside and the militant group is moving to enforce a curfew for “an indefinite time”.

This comes as residents line the streets in several cities to protest the Taliban’s regime and call for a return to a democratic government.

All kinds of movement will now be banned by the Taliban in the wake of protests

The clampdown follows a United Nations briefing that found that the Taliban is stepping up the search for “collaborators”.

The G7 foreign ministers have called on the militant group to continue to honour their commitment to allowing safe passage out of the country.

In a statement, the UK’s Dominic Raab says “the ministers are deeply concerned by reports of violent reprisals in parts of Afghanistan”.

‘The fact is that a future Afghan government that upholds the basic rights of its people, that doesn’t harbor terrorists, and that protects the basic rights of its people, including the basic fundamental rights of half of its population, its women and girls, that is a government that we would be able to work with,’ 

Australia’s evacuation flight arrives in Perth

The first Australian evacuation flight from Afghanistan has arrived in Perth.

The Royal Australian Air Force plane carrying 90 Australians and Afghan visa holders landed in Western Australia this morning.It marks the first flight of more than 600 Australians and refugees to make the journey.

40 additional troops have been deployed to Kabul as rescue efforts continue.

On Thursday, Taliban militants fired into the air to try to control the crowds gathered at the airport’s blast walls. 

Men, women and children fled in fear for their safety, scrambing into planes – some without a ticket.

Fighter jets later roared overhead, but no airstrike accompanied their pass.The ABC reported that several Australians and visa holders trying to get through were forced to flee after Taliban guards attacked people.
