US military announces completion of withdrawal from Afghanistan

Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “US military announces completion of withdrawal from Afghanistan” – below is their description.

The Pentagon announced on Monday afternoon that the last American troops had left Kabul airport almost 24 hours ahead of schedule, ending the U.S. war in Afghanistan after 20 years and the deaths of more than 2372 troops. Witnesses in Kabul said the Taliban let off celebratory gunfire as news circulated that the final U.S. flight had left. It means President Biden managed to meet his August 31 deadline, but at the cost of letting a militant group retake the country and after the deaths of 13 U.S. service members last week.
