Germany ends evacuation operation in Afghanistan — defense minister – The Times of Israel

Germany has pulled all of its soldiers out of Afghanistan, with its last evacuation flight from Kabul, Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer says.
“All soldiers, members of the foreign ministry, and federal police who have led this mission to a safe end for us on the ground have been flown out of Kabul,” she says.
The military evacuation mission has therefore now ended, she says, adding that she was “relieved that our soldiers who carried out this dangerous operation have safely left Afghan airspace.”
Germany had flown out 5,347 people since August 16, the minister says.
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.
