Most of the American weapons brought to the Afghan army fell into the hands of the Taliban movement, National Security Adviser to the U.S. President Jake Sullivan said during a briefing at the White House.
According to him, the U.S. military has information on each item of weapons delivered to Afghanistan. Washington believes that a large amount of equipment was captured by Taliban militants. “Obviously, we do not expect that they will return it to us at the Kabul airport,” the politician said about the origin of weapons from the Taliban.
The situation in Afghanistan has become difficult in the last two weeks. On Sunday, August 15, the Taliban captured Kabul and the presidential Palace. They stated that they control all border posts and the whole of Afghanistan. Hundreds of people rushed to the airport to leave the country in time. On Tuesday, August 17, the Taliban temporarily suspended all flights from the air harbor of the capital of Afghanistan. In addition, the terrorists noted that they would adopt new rules for women. They were allowed to host news and other programs on television. The Taliban also noted that they guarantee the observance of women’s rights, which do not contradict Islam.
