Women In Kabul Throwing Babies Over Barbed Wire To Save Them From Upcoming Taliban Hell
Soul-crushing footage from Taliban-occupied Afghanistan shows people trying to get their babies ahead of them at Kabul airport in hopes that they will be saved first.
According to other reports, mothers were also throwing their babies over the barbed fence in order to save them from the terrorists
Stuart Ramsey of Sky News said:
“A senior officer told me they had no choice because the situation was out of control, but said the blockade will live with some of his soldiers for the rest of their lives. ‘It was terrible, women were throwing their babies over the razor wire, asking the soldiers to take them, some got caught in the wire,’ he told me. ‘I’m worried for my men, I’m counselling some, everyone cried last night.’”

Meanwhile, I News reported:
“The report from Kabul by war correspondent Kim Sengupta is one of the most upsetting stories we have published. At Kabul airport, a Parachute Regiment officer tells Kim that Afghan mothers have been trying to throw their babies over the barbed wire to British servicemen, in the hope that their children can be saved from life under the Taliban. Some of the babies did not reach the troops.”
