Traumatized Afghanistan: Taliban hits women, children with sharp objects at Kabul airport
Kabul : Taliban promised to respect the rights of women and children and maintain peace in Afghanistan, but within 72 hours the real shades of them have started to show. The reports of violence have been reported from the Kabul airport, where women and children are believed to have been beaten with sharp objects.
The pictures of the incident have gone viral on social media. In the visuals, people can be seen lying wounded on the road to Kabul airport. Taliban are known to be using sharp objects like whips, sticks to beat women and children who are trying to enter the airport to leave the country and escape the hardline Islamist rule predicted under the insurgents.
The images have been shared by the Los Angeles Times reporter Marcus Yam on Twitter today. He claimed in the caption, “At least half dozen were wounded while I was there, including a woman and her child.”
From the day Taliban took control of Kabul in Afghanistan, the airport has been flooded by the residents who wish to leave the nation.
