The chaotic situation in Hamid Karzai International Airport is not only mitigated but has increased and a gunfight on Monday, August 23, killed at least one and wounded three more.

An unknown gunman reportedly opened fire at Afghan guards which prompted responsive fires both by Afghan forces and US troops.

The slain and those wounded are not yet fully confirmed, whether they are the Taliban members or the Afghan force members.

A special unit of the National Directorate of Security is not yet surrendered and is assisting the foreign troops in particular the US ones to evacuate people.

The incident happened at the northern gate of Kabul airport.

The Taliban officials have not commented on the gunfight yet and all the gates of the airport closed as thousands of men, women, and children are still awaiting a flight in blazing weather at the doors.

The chaos in Hamid Karzai International Airport has triggered anger among the Afghan people on social media and has called the situation to be a sheer impudence as women are hugged by US military personnel to cross barricades into the airport.

People have asked the applicants to be patient, wait for the order to prevail in the airport, and do not let such a shame which is defaming the people of Afghanistan on a global stage.
