Videos have surfaced on social media in which dozens of people make a last desperate attempt to get out of Afghanistan, clinging to the landing gear and fuselage of American military aircraft flying out of the country.
Eyewitnesses watched as strange objects fell from a military plane that had taken off. Local media claim that these are real people. According to journalists, several men who wanted to fly out of Afghanistan could not hold onto the aircraft landing gear (or were pushed out). Falling down on residential buildings, they crashed to death, writes The base.
On August 15, when the Afghan authorities announced the surrender without a fight of Kabul, which was approached by the Taliban, diplomats from the United States and other Western countries began to be transported to the airport for subsequent evacuation. The air harbor was taken under guard by six thousand American military. Amid reports of the cancellation of civil flights at the airport, panic arose. Several hundred people, including parents with children, ran onto the runway, trying to catch the last planes from Afghanistan. The US military fired into the air to restore order.
According to reports that leads The Guardian, the last commercial flights from Kabul took off overcrowded and several people had to be removed from the aircraft, as the planes allegedly could not fly.
The Wall Street Journal, citing eyewitnesses, wrotethat the shooting at the airport killed at least three people. Al arabiya informs about five victims and notes that they could have died in a stampede.
