Death toll at Kabul airport chaos grows to 20 — NATO official – The Times of Israel

A panicked crush of people trying to enter Kabul’s international airport has killed seven Afghan civilians in the crowds, the British military says, showing the danger still posed to those trying to flee the Taliban’s takeover of the country.
At least 20 people have been killed at the airport in the past week, a NATO official says.
“The crisis outside the Kabul airport is unfortunate. Our focus is to evacuate all foreigners as soon as we can,” the anonymous NATO official tells the Guardian.
As The Times of Israel’s environment reporter, I try to convey the facts and science behind climate change and environmental degradation, to explain – and critique – the official policies affecting our future, and to describe Israeli technologies that can form part of the solution.
I am passionate about the natural world and disheartened by the dismal lack of awareness to environmental issues shown by most of the public and politicians in Israel.
I’m proud to be doing my part to keep Times of Israel readers properly informed about this vital subject – which can and does effect policy change.
