Another tragic story out of Afghanistan.
A pregnant American was kicked in the stomach by the Taliban and blocked from fleeing Afghanistan.
She is hiding in her apartment.
A pregnant American woman is still trapped in Afghanistan after she was forced into hiding when the Taliban blocked her at a checkpoint and kicked her in the stomach as she tried to flee with her husband.
The California couple are among the hundreds of Americans left stranded in Kabul after the final US forces left, despite Biden’s promise to evacuate every citizen before the withdrawal deadline.
California GOP Rep. Darrell Issa is working on trying to get the woman, who he called ‘Nasria,’ out and described her harrowing experiences that forced her to go into hiding in an interview on Fox & Friends Tuesday.
‘She was kicked in the stomach, but she was kicked in the stomach well after – as she got through the first checkpoint for hours, waiting for those people at the south point to supposedly come and get her,’ the Republican lawmaker said.
‘It wasn’t until it was clear they had closed, they weren’t taking anyone else for quite a while that finally, she accepted that she was going to have to go back and hide in her apartment.’
She never made it onto a US military evacuation flight. The last C-17 jet left Hamid Karzai International Airport at 3:29 p.m. ET on August 30. It carried the remainder of troops on the ground, embassy staff including Ambassador Ross Wilson, and Major General Christopher Donahue.
