Gunshots heard in Kabul amid report of ‘house-to-house executions’


The Taliban are carrying out “house-to-house executions,” according to reports, as newly released audio provides a glimpse into the extremist militants’ rule over Afghanistan since the US withdrawal. Obtained by Fox News, the audio features an Afghan man, who reportedly worked with Americans on the ground, talking about the gunfire surrounding him as he hid in an unknown location. “I think there’s a conflict between the Taliban, I have no idea where I’m located,” he reportedly said. “From everywhere I hear the sounds of shooting, gunfire. I have no idea how to leave.” Gunshots could be heard in the audio, which was allegedly recorded about the same time the last US plane left Afghanistan. Several other reports of gunfire and fireworks emerged as the US troops completed the withdrawal Tuesday. “All the American troops have left Afghanistan, we are very happy — you can listen to the celebratory fire,” Taliban spokesman Bilal Karimi told Agence France-Presse after they stormed the airport. Toward the end of the withdrawal, Fox News reported that Taliban militants were carrying out “house-to-house executions” in the city, per a senior US official.
