Greater Middle East (bbabo.net), - The Qatari authorities have ordered the suspension of evacuation flights for Afghan refugees hoping to resettle in the United States. It is reported by AamajNews, citing NBC sources.
The official explanation from the Qatari authorities is that the country is hosting the World Cup in November. The opening ceremony is scheduled for November 20, and flight bookings have been suspended until January.
It should be noted that after the chaotic withdrawal of the US-led Western coalition in August 2021, thousands of Afghans fled their country and have been waiting for promised evacuation flights ever since.
