Commercial flights at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul were suspended earlier today “until further notice” to allow civil aviation to transport departing passengers.
Furthermore, according to local media, the airport administration has temporarily suspended commercial flights due to the turmoil and crowding caused by travelers' desire to flee the country.
According to a statement posted on the Taliban's official website, the Taliban movement ordered its soldiers to enter Kabul neighborhoods yesterday. Furthermore, this operation was carried out, according to the statement, to prevent looting and violence in areas where the police and security forces had left.
