Over 350 people including Americans leave Kabul on evacuation flight
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 18 - 10 - 2021

One of the largest evacuation flights departed Kabul on Sunday with an unknown number of Americans on board and is on its way to Doha, a senior Qatari government official told CNN.
The ninth evacuation flight from Afghanistan since August 31 is carrying 353 evacuees, including faculty, staff, and students from the American University of Afghanistan, as well as citizens from Afghanistan, the United States, the Netherlands, Denmark and Australia, among others, according to the official.
The official did not say how many Americans were on board. CNN has reached out to the US State Department.
Upon arrival in Doha, Qatar, the passengers will be transported to a facility currently hosting evacuees, where they will be tested for Covid-19. They will remain in Doha until departing for their ultimate destination.
The Qatari official said that Qatar will "continue to work with international partners on efforts that ensure freedom of movement in Afghanistan, including through serving as an active mediator between various parties. We remain focused on providing humanitarian aid to the country and are dedicated to promoting a stable and peaceful Afghanistan moving forward."
Meanwhile, the US media has reported that the United States intends to resume evacuation flights from Afghanistan by the end of this year.
After Taliban's takeover of Afghanistan on August 15, hundreds of people rushed to the airport looking for an opportunity to leave the country as quickly as possible, which resulted in several days of chaos there. As foreigners and Afghans who helped foreign forces sought to leave the country, the airport was shaken by a terrorist attack organized by a local affiliate of the Islamic State group. — Agencies
