ministers see wasted time
Evacuation of shelter in Kabul failed
A British man setting up an animal shelter in the Afghan capital is trying to get his staff and animals out of the country on a charter flight. The British Defense Minister personally gives the green light for action – but is later resentful. The escape attempt was also unsuccessful.
An attempt by a British man to evacuate an animal shelter in Kabul was unsuccessful. According to him, the action ended at the airport, where on Thursday there was a attack With dozens dead and wounded. Former British soldier Paul Farthing started a campaign on social media to be able to fly over 150 cats and dogs from an animal shelter he set up in Kabul.
Meanwhile, UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said he had spent too much time discussing the evacuation of pets from Afghanistan. The conservative politician said in an interview with Times Radio. Wallace initially rejected the action from the Taliban, citing a preference for at-risk people, but eventually came under pressure. will bow down.
Farthing’s attempt to board a plane at the airport with about 70 staff and animals chartered by supporters on Thursday, however, failed due to missing documents, leading to the operation being called off due to the chaos following the attack. The Briton tweeted that he was sent away after US President Joe Biden recently changed document rules. “We went through hell to get there and were sent into the chaos of those devastating explosions.”
Farthing had previously offered to take other people on a charter plane. Animals must travel in the cargo area. “If he comes with his animals, we will find a place for his plane,” Wallace tweeted on Wednesday.
According to Wallace, the British rescue mission is due to end this Friday. It now appears more than doubtful whether Americans will be able to leave Farthing with their crews and animals before the end of the military campaign on August 31.
