BBC journalists carried out a small investigation into the terrorist attack outside the Kabul airport. Some of the witnesses interviewed said that some of the victims were not killed by a suicide bomb, but were mistakenly killed by the Americans.
In the report, one of the Afghans spoke about his brother Mohammed, a London taxi driver, who flew to Kabul to evacuate his family. He and his wife were shot and killed in the immediate aftermath of the blast when soldiers guarding the airport’s perimeter frantically fired into the crowd amid the confusion.
Another interlocutor from the British edition confirmed these assumptions and gave an example of his acquaintance, in whose body only a gunshot wound to the head was found. The BBC sent a request to the Pentagon, but the US Department of Defense never responded.
Once the evacuation of Kabul is complete, both the Taliban and the Islamic State will be able to successfully use the incident in their propaganda as a new example of the “atrocities of the occupiers”..
A staff member at Kabul Hospital claimed: “Only about 20 people present at Kabul airport were killed by a suicide bomber, and the rest were all killed by blind fire from US forces after the explosion!”
