The United States and Nato have been in Afghanistan for almost 20 years.

But the withdrawal, which lasts until September 11, comes at a time of escalating violence, and Afghan security forces are on high alert for retaliatory attacks.

The Taliban have warned that they will no longer be bound by an agreement not to target international troops.

Under an agreement signed last year between the militants and then-President Donald Trump, foreign forces would withdraw before May 1 when the Taliban banned attacks on international troops.

That has not stopped Taliban attacks on Afghan forces and civilians.

But US President Joe Biden last month other troops would remain until September 11 this year, commemorating the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, citing the security situation.

A Taliban spokesman said “this violation has basically opened the way for [Taliban fighters] take every step of elimination it deems appropriate against the forces taking it. ”

But he also said Taliban militants would await orders from officials before the escalation of attacks. Some analysts have suggested that the US deadline for withdrawal from the site of major attacks could be prevented.

At the same time America is facing the challenge of packing and departure equipment. The AP report the military has been taking stock, deciding what will be shipped and what will be sold as waste in Afghan markets.

On September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States killed at least 3,000 people. Osama Bin Laden, head of the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda, was quickly identified as the person responsible.

The Taliban, extremist Muslims who drove Afghanistan and protected Bin Laden, refused to hand him over.

When other countries joined the war, the Taliban were quickly ousted from power. But they just didn’t disappear – their influence grew backwards and they dug.

Since then, the United States and its allies have worked hard to prevent the Afghan government from collapsing, ending a brutal attack by the Taliban.

The withdrawal of U.S. troops begins against the escalation of fierce fighting between the Taliban and government forces, without a peace agreement.

The outbreak of violence in Ghazni province overnight left an unknown number of people dead.

On Friday, a car bomb had exploded at Pul-e-Alam, Logar province, killing at least 30 people and injuring 110 – many of them schoolchildren.
