Monitoring Desk: No commercial flight will touch any airport of Afghanistan till further orders, said a statement issued by the Aviation authorities presently working at Kabul Airport.
Only those flights are allowed that come to evacuate foreigners and US forces will handle the flight traffic.
All passengers who have tickets are now not allowed to enter Kabul Airport. The decision was taken after US forces killed five passengers creating hurdles in the evacuation of US families.
Taliban have already closed borders with Iran, China, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Pakistan so there is no way out for those who wish to leave Afghanistan.
