Shops, marketplaces, schools remain closed in Kabul
Shops, marketplaces, and schools remain closed in Kabul as the Taliban took control of the Afghan capital, causing massive turmoil.
According to the reports of Xinhua news agency. Members of the Taliban were observed on the streets on Monday, a day after the city’s collapse, but it seemed that they were unable to preserve law and order, as looting occurred in several institutions of military and stolen military vehicles were observed on the roadways.
If anybody commits crimes, including stealing, the militant group has warned that they would be treated harshly.
“I am not sure about my future and the future of my children. No one knows what would happen one hour later, or my children can go to school tomorrow,” a resident, Mohammad Aref, told Xinhua on Monday.
Despite the fact that Afghanistan has had no head of state or government since the city’s fall, the Taliban issued a brief statement on local media urging citizens, including government employees, to return to their offices and resume normal operations.
Several government offices, banks, and schools remained closed on Monday, as the Taliban militants monitored the city streets in military vehicles or on foot.
Another citizen, Hamayon, told Xinhua of his plans to escape the country since the future for Afghanistan and himself seemed terrible.
“I try to leave the country maybe today, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, or anytime the fortune sides me,” he said.
The 31-year-old guy, who spent nine years in the national army, expressed his dissatisfaction with the scenario.
On Sunday night, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani departed the country, as Taliban forces seized Kabul and took possession of the presidential house.
All diplomatic missions and foreigners in Kabul will be safe, according to the Taliban.
Zabihullah Mujahid, the group’s spokesperson, stated that the group is dedicated to maintaining security in the Afghan capital.
According to Mujahid, the insurgents now dominate all of Kabul’s districts.
Another Taliban spokesman has stated that the Afghan conflict is ended and that a new power structure would emerge shortly.
To prevent bloodshed, a night curfew has been enforced in Kabul.
