Deployed a unit of special forces
The Taliban had deployed a special forces unit at the airport’s main gate about two weeks ago. They say that they are ready to take over the security and technical responsibility of the airport.

It killed 170 Afghan and 13 American soldiers.

Earlier, the Taliban assured that a group of special forces, a team of technical professionals and qualified engineers are ready to take charge of the airport once the US forces leave.
