India Urges Its Nationals To Leave Afghanistan On 'Special Flight' Today

India has asked its nationals to leave Afghanistan today on a “special flight” from Mazar-i-Sharif – the country’s fourth largest city – amid intense fighting with the Taliban.

The Taliban said Monday they had turned their sights on Mazar-i-Sharif.

A spokesperson of the insurgents announced on social media that they had launched a four-pronged attack on the city. They have already captured Sheberghan to its west and Kunduz and Taloqan in the east.

Mazar-i-Sharif is the largest city in the north and considered a linchpin to the government’s control over the area.
