Daily Evacuation Brief | June 3, 2022
LAST 24 HOURS:
A source within the Taliban stated all security forces in Kabul were ordered to be on their best behavior for the duration of a visit by Indian diplomats and sports figures. The source said the Taliban leadership is extremely interested in establishing relations with India, likely in large part because it will be useful in future negotiations with Pakistan.
While the Ministry of Transport has stated that all the radar systems at the major airports in Afghanistan are operational, local sources with intimate knowledge state this is inaccurate. On the contrary, systems in Herat, Kandahar, and one unidentified airport are reported to only function sporadically and be prone to breaking down.
Pakistani lawmaker Mohsin Dawari is aggressively challenging the peace deal agreement with the TTP and has said the deal involves a transfer of administrative authority from Pakistan’s tribal regions to the Taliban.
NEXT 24 HOURS:
Tajikistan security forces are expected to intensify a counter-terrorism operation in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region in the east with a focus on finding three key leaders who are hiding in two unidentified villages in the region. A source within Tajik intelligence services say two of the leaders are from Afghanistan and are active members of ETIM.

“Our organization does three main things,” said No One Left Behind Director of Advocacy and Marine veteran Jeff Phaneuf M.B.A. ’23. “We do evacuation — that’s everything from chartering flights to helping facilitate people get on U.S. government flights. We do resettlement, which is helping folks who make it to the US with things like car loans and grants for furniture, clothing and rental assistance. But my job is to advocate for changes in the law and changes and governmental action.”
