US drones violating Afghanistan’s airspace, claims Taliban


The Taliban group has claimed that the U.S. drones still ‘occupy’ the airspace of Afghanistan, calling it a move against the commitments of Doha agreement.

The group in a statement said the United States has recently resorted to occupation of Afghanistan’s airspace by flying unmanned aerial vehicles.

The statement further added that the Islamic Emirate calls on US to consider international laws and regulations while interacting with Afghanistan.

Without disclosing further information, the group claimed that such violations could have grave repercussions.

The officials in the United States have not formally commented regarding the Taliban claims so far.

The U.S. military announced the completion of troops withdrawal and the end of the 20-year mission in Afghanistan on August 30, 2021.

The last C-17 lifted off at Hamid Karzai International Airport on August 30th, at 3:29 pm East Coast Time, and became the last manned aircraft to clear the airspace of Afghanistan, according to CENTCOM Commander, Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth McKenzie Jr.

Confirming the completion of military evacuation from Afghanistan, Gen. McKenzei said the diplomatic mission to ensure the additional US citizens and eligible Afghans who want to leave, would continue.
