The Pentagon is moving 3,000 Marines and soldiers to Afghanistan and another 4,000 troops to the region to evacuate most of the American Embassy and U.S. citizens in Kabul

Iran PressAmerica: The troops, which will consist of three infantry battalions in total from the Marines and Army, will deploy to Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport within 24 to 48 hours, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said during a press briefing Thursday.

The U.S. Embassy in Kabul urged Americans again on Thursday to leave Afghanistan immediately, warning that its ability to assist citizens is “extremely limited” due to deteriorating security conditions and reduced staffing.

“In light of the evolving security situation, we expect to draw down to a core diplomatic presence in Afghanistan,” US State Department spokesman Ned Price said Thursday.

In recent weeks, the civil war in Afghanistan has intensified with increasing Taliban attacks on government-controlled areas, making Afghanistan more insecure.

By announcing the date for the withdrawal of the last US troops from Afghanistan and the failure of peace talks among the Afghan parties, the Taliban have stepped up their efforts to seize more territory in Afghanistan.

During its 20 years of failed military presence in Afghanistan, the United States has been incapable of containing the Taliban and has produced nothing but the spread of terrorism, war, violence, instability, and the killing of tens of thousands of people. 219
