Since May, the “Taliban” has begun to expand its control in Afghanistan with the start of the final phase of the withdrawal of US forces.

It is scheduled to be completed by August 31, and the movement took control of most of the country within 10 days.

The movement took control of the presidential palace in Kabul in mid-August, while President Ashraf Ghani left the country and arrived in the UAE.

He said he did so to “prevent a massacre,” despite billions of dollars spent by Washington and NATO over nearly 20 years to build up Afghan security forces.


Many countries continue to evacuate their nationals, as well as Afghan nationals who have cooperated with their forces operating in Afghanistan over the past two decades.
