The Taliban quickly took over major cities throughout Afghanistan within the past week and breached the capital, Kabul, early Sunday, The Associated Press (AP) reported.
Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country as the insurgents moved towards the capital. Abdullah Abdullah, the head of the Afghan National Reconciliation Council, said the president’s decision to leave the country leaves it in a “difficult situation,” according to AP. “God should hold him accountable.”
Afghanistan’s acting defense minister, Bismillah Khan Mohammadi, also criticized Ghani’s decision to flee the country. He said, “They tied our hands from behind and sold the country. Curse Ghani and his gang,” AP reported.
