Turkish military cares for 2-month-old Afghan baby separated from her mother
Turkish soldiers are setting an example to the world by extending a helping hand to anyone in need, amid thousands of people, including women and children, waiting near Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul to be evacuated.
Turkish soldiers were seen looking after a 2-month-old Afghan baby who got separated from her mother at Kabul airport, Daily Sabah reported.
During the turmoil that broke out at the Kabul airport, Farista Rahmani got separated from her 2-month-old baby Hadiya Rahmani and her husband, Ali Musa Rahmani.
The Turkish forces helped the father, who was waiting in despair at the northern gate within the military line as the baby’s belongings remained with the mother.
The soldiers brought them to the safe zone, cleaned the infant’s bottom and even fed her.
Thereafter the baby was handed over to her father.
Thousands of Afghans and foreign nationals are scrambling to flee the country after the Taliban took over Afghanistan last week. As the land border crossings remain closed, the Kabul airport has become the only way out of the country for many people.
With hundreds of Afghans trying to flee the nation without any papers has led to chaos as, according to witnesses, Taliban fighters attacked citizens on their way to the airport.
The violence has left 12 people in the area dead – killed by gunshots or in stampedes – since Sunday, an anonymous Taliban official told Reuters news agency.
Crowds have also gathered along the airport’s perimeter, with many trying to climb over the barbed wire fences. Videos shared on social media showed children being passed over a wall by foreign soldiers in an attempt to get them to safety.
