“We’re reaching the end of the evacuation, which will take place during the course of today, and then of course it’ll be necessary to bring our troops out on the remaining aircraft,” Britain’s Chief of Defence Staff General Carter said.The evacuation of civilians from Afghanistan will be completed on Saturday, with only troops remaining to be flown out before the August 31 deadline, according to Britain's Chief of Defence Staff.During media interviews on Saturday,
General Sir Nick Carter said the country should be "holding its breath" as it faces the challenge ahead, citing the threat posed by the local Islamic State Khorasan (ISIS-K) terror group, which has been responsible for suicide bombings this week as the airlift rescue operations have been underway.As the UK's evacuation efforts following the Taliban takeover draw to a close,
Mr. Carter stated the country is "not out of the woods yet."“We’re reaching the end of the evacuation, which will take place during the course of today, and then of course it’ll be necessary to bring our troops out on the remaining aircraft,” General Carter told the BBC.“It’s gone as well as it could under the circumstances... but we haven’t been able to bring everybody out and that has been heartbreaking and there have been some very challenging judgments that have had to be made on the ground,” he said.
