According to Bellis, the Taliban has closed the airport road, put up checkpoints, and fired into the air in an attempt to push civilians back.

“They’ve now enlarged the perimeter [around the airport]; hopefully, they’ll be able to get this situation under control,” Bellis said.

“When I speak with the Taliban, they say, ‘Why is it up to us to control the airport and manage all these evacuees when this is a US project, and they should be communicating better themselves to ensure that people understand if they are entitled to get on these flights and if they are not?’”
