Taliban: Afghan National Team Player Falls From US Plane While Trying To Flee Country 

An Afghan national youth team footballer Zaki Anwari has died in a fall from a US plane at Kabul airport, Sky Sports reports.

Crowds of people seeking to leave Afghanistan have fled to the airport since the Taliban seized the capital on Sunday. In dramatic scenes, some tried to board a moving plane as it prepared to take off.

According to the Ariana football agency, national youth team footballer Anwari fell from a USAF Boeing C-17 on Monday.

His death has been confirmed by the General Directorate for Sport, the report said.

The report added that the 19-year-old is believed to have died after attempting to hold on to the outside of the American military aircraft.

The US Air Force said on Wednesday it was conducting a review of what happened as Afghan civilians ran alongside and around the aeroplane before it took off from Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA).

The C-17 Globemaster, with a callsign Reach 871, was carrying some 640 Afghans, reportedly more than five times its suggested payload, after hundreds of desperate people flooded onto the plane.

A photo showing the Afghan civilians, crouching and crammed up against each other on the floor of the military plane, went viral on social media after Kabul was seized by Taliban insurgents.

US defence officials said the plane took off from the international airport in Afghanistan’s capital city with what is believed to be the highest number of people ever flown in the C-17, a military cargo aircraft that has been used by the US and its allies for nearly 30 years.

It touched down safely in Qatar.

In a statement, the Department of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) said it was reviewing all available information regarding a C-17 aircraft, as well as the loss of civilian lives.

“In addition to online videos and press reports of people falling from the aircraft on departure, human remains were discovered in the wheel well of the C-17 after it landed at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar,” it said.

OSI said its review will be “thorough to ensure we obtain the facts regarding this tragic incident”, adding “our hearts go out to the families of the deceased”.

The aircraft had landed in Kabul to deliver a load of equipment to support the evacuation of Afghan and American civilians from Afghanistan, but before the aircrew could offload the cargo, it was surrounded by hundreds of Afghan civilians who had breached the airport perimeter.

The air force said its crew decided to depart the airfield as quickly as possible due to the rapidly deteriorating situation around the aircraft.

At least five people were killed during chaos on the ground, with US troops firing into the air to deter people trying to force their way onto flights evacuating diplomats and embassy staff.

    God will sound the trumpet anytime soon, the news of late is just too crazy to behold. Post Trump administration will really facilitate the destruction of the world only God can help us, already they’re forcing gay on African nations now to accept and practice, now they have left Taliban to take over Afghanistan again and leave the life of people to danger fleeing the country by any means for safety. Some meet their death in the way of escape because they know staying back is not a better option either. What a crazy world American under Biden is demonic.

     
    • @ Chima Samuel. Thanks for this comment. Strange, people, even so called practicing christians are not even seeing the hand writing on the wall; THAT MOMENT IS HERE. THE FEAR OF DEATH THAT HAS ALWAYS BEING THE GREATEST WEAPON OF SATAN, BEING USED TO PROJECT HIS AGENDA. A CHRISTIAN WILL SAY HE BELIEVES IN CHRIST BUT SAME CHRISTIAN OUT OF FEAR OF DYING WILL GO ON TO TAKE VACCINE,( REMEMBER SHEDRACK, MESHACH N ABEDNEGO?). THAT THE SCIENTISTS ARE SMARTLY N GRADUALLY PROJECTING AS SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD THUS TRYING TO USURP THE POSITION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST IN OUR LIFE. I personally have vowed to rather die than have that rubbish vaccine. Anyway as a true believer in JESUS CHRIST, WE ARE ALREADY DEAD IN OURSELVES, ONLY ALIVE IN CHRIST FOR OUR LIFE IS NOW HIDDEN IN CHRIST WAITING TO BE REVEALED IN THE LAST DAY. ITS NO LONGER US LIVING BUT JESUS CHRIST THROUGH US. OUR LORD JESUS LIVES FOREVER, SO WHAT THAT MEANS, IS WHAT LIVES INSIDE OF US( JESUS CHRIST) LIVES FOREVER. THE BIBLE SAYS” GREATER IS HE IN US THAN HE IN THE WORLD. WHY THEN AS A BELIEVER IN CHRIST SHOULD I BE AFRAID OF DEATH OF ANY KIND? BUT ONLY WHEN I AM LIVING TO GLORIFY MYSELF INSTEAD OF LIVING TO GLORIFY GOD. FOR WHEN I LIVE TO GLORIFY GOD, IN DEATH IT IS GODS WILL FOR ME; MY WORK HERE ON EARTH MAY HAVE JUST COME TO AN END

       
  • Only believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved and raptured when the Lord Jesus will come for His own (Acts 16:30-31, John 3:15-18). Believe that Jesus died for your sins and he was buried and that He rose again on the third day (1.Cor 15:1-4)
