Earlier Sunday, Ghani explained in a lengthy Facebook post the reason for his exit. The former president said he left the war-torn country to ‘avoid bloodshed’. Ghani said he was facing a “tough choice” between “armed Taliban” or “leaving the dear country that I dedicated my life to protecting for the past 20 years”.

He added that the terrorist group had won a “trial against swords and weapons” but could not win the hearts of the Afghan people. “If left unchecked, countless patriots would be martyred and the city of Kabul would be destroyed, resulting in a major humanitarian catastrophe in the city of six million people,” Ghani said.

Meanwhile, chaos has erupted at Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport after thousands of Afghans gathered at Kabul airport in search of an evacuation flight. The US military has taken over security at Kabul airport to carry out the massive air lift of diplomatic presence in Afghanistan following the Taliban’s takeover of the capital.
