BREAKING!!! Tension As Taliban Forcefully Take Over Presidential Palace, Declares Afghanistan Islamic Emirate

 

Taliban has declared Afghanistan as the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

It is understood that Afghanistan was in a state of flux Sunday with the Taliban fighters seizing control of Kabul and the presidential palace.

There was a stampede out of the capital, with the airport jammed with diplomats and ordinary Afghans who want to escape the rule of the mullahs.

The Americans claimed the airport was under fire. There was no detail as to whether anyone has come into harms way.

“The security situation in Kabul is changing quickly including at the airport. There are reports of the airport taking fire; therefore we are instructing U.S. citizens to shelter in place,” a U.S. Embassy security alert said.

Hundreds of Afghans, some of them, government ministers and government employees and also other civilians including many women and children, crowded in the terminal desperately waiting for flights out.

“The airport is out of control… the (Afghan) government just sold us out,” said an official at the scene who declined to be named for security reasons.

American diplomats were evacuated from their embassy by helicopter to the airport as local Afghan forces, trained for years and equipped by the United States and others for billions of dollars, melted away.
