Here’s What the Taliban Did Immediately After Final U.S. Troops Left


The last American soldier has left Afghanistan. This ends the 20-year US campaign.

Immediately after the last plane left, footage shows the Taliban taking over the Kabul airport.

They celebrated with gunfire after the last American left.

The Taliban “joyously fired guns into the air,” according to Agence France-Presse. BBC News also broadcasted the footage of gunfire.

Another video shows them entering a hangar with equipment the US military left behind.

A US general said this equipment, including 150 vehicles, is “permanently disabled.”

This should prevent the Taliban from “never using them again.”

However, footage has surfaced that appears to show US equipment in use. This is causing widespread speculation about whether the equipment is, in fact, permenantly disabled.

More from Business Insider:

BBC News broadcast footage of the gunfire, with its chief international correspondent, Lyse Doucet, pointing to what she said was celebratory gunfire, including illuminated tracer rounds. She said it was the “eruption of celebratory gunfire by Taliban supporters in the city of Kabul.”

Reuters reported that the Taliban took control of the airport before dawn on Tuesday and that celebratory gunfire could be heard across Kabul.
