Afghan Evacuations Will Continue Through August 31 Deadline: Pentagon


Afghanistan: US said that it will continue its Afghanistan evacuation beyond August 31 deadline.


The Pentagon rejected reports Thursday that they are preparing to end evacuations from Afghanistan before this weekend, saying the operations from Kabul airport will continue until August 31.

“Evacuation operations in Kabul will not be wrapping up in 36 hours. We will continue to evacuate as many people as we can until the end of the mission,” Defense Department Spokesman John Kirby said.
