These are people who were unable to leave the country in Operation 2021 and left for Pakistan

MADRID, August 10 (EUROPA PRESS) –

A plane from Pakistan carrying nearly three hundred Afghan refugees who have been confined to the country since the Taliban took over Kabul a year ago arrived at Madrid’s Torrejón de Ardoz airbase at around 10:20 p.m. this Wednesday.

It is an evacuation operation that is being carried out thanks to a plane chartered by the Spanish government that left Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, to arrive in Torrejón this afternoon, according to official sources. The flight was received at the airbase by Minister for Foreign Affairs, EU and Cooperation, José Manuel Albares.

Just a year ago, the defense and foreign ministries led the evacuation mission from Afghanistan, which managed to evacuate more than 2,000 Afghans from Kabul airport, people who had been collaborating with the Spanish authorities in recent years, and their families .

Operations officially ended on 27 August after 17 Air Force A400M rotations (Dubai-Kabul-Dubai), ten Air Europa (Dubai-Torrejón) flights, and one maiden flight and one A400M maiden flight (Dubai-Torrejon).


Just a day earlier, a double attack near Kabul airport killed at least 60 Afghan civilians and 13 US soldiers.

With this mission completed, the Spanish authorities continued their efforts to secure the transfer of more people who managed to leave Afghanistan by land and be met in Pakistan.
