Taliban fighters are now reportedly roaming the airport in Kabul and the Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. forces killed two Taliban soldiers.

Thousands of Americans are still stranded in Afghanistan, including 2.500 U.S. military personnel. In an interview on CNN Tuesday morning, Spokesperson for the Biden Administration John Kirby admitted that the U.S. wasn’t entirely certain of how many Americans might still be there saying, “we don’t have an exact count. I would say, best guess? Between 8,000 to 10,000 near Kabul.”

Meanwhile, yesterday it was reported that the publisher of The Washington Post, Fred Ryan, pleaded with Biden’s national security advisor Jake Sullivan on behalf of the Post, the New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal to evacuate journalists and their families from Afghanistan.

At the Kabul airport, Afghanis clung to planes’ landing gear as the planes were taking off. At least eight people reportedly died in the chaos, including those that fell from the landing gear of planes in flight.

 

Two armed men were shot by the U.S. Marines in two separate incidents. Military Officials can’t confirm whether the men were Taliban fighters.

WATCH: Horror, Chaos, and Violence In Kabul As U.S. Forces Leave

The U.S. forces were forced to fire warning shots at the crowds amassing at the airport, to no avail. Now, the Taliban have taken control of the area.

Taliban fighters were filmed shooting at people trying to enter Kabul airport.

Taliban are close to establishing full control of the country. Government forces are still fighting in some regions in the north and east of the country.

Taliban are in full control of the city of Kabul, including the Presidential Palace. This footage shows Taliban fighters are attempting to use equipment at the Presidential Palace gym.

The new regime has issued statements that were somewhat unexpected.

They declared a general amnesty for all government workers, urged women to join their government and stated they would build an “inclusive, Islamic government.” Many Afghans remain skeptical.

Despite the violent takeover, not all Kabul residents fear the Taliban. A group of women gathered in Kabul Wazir Akbar Khan neighborhood, demanding equal rights and participation in government, politics and economy. The women did not name the new regime directly.

Religious minorities face an uncertain future in Afghanistan. The Taliban adhere to an orthodox interpretation of Islam that delegates select protected religious minorities to a status of second-class citizens. In Afghanistan, this applies to Sikhs.

The Taliban takeover appears to be emboldening extremists in the region. Islamists in Lahore, Pakistan have vandalized a statue of an 18th-century Sikh ruler Maharaja Ranjit Singh.
