British Army Secretary of State James Hafey said this morning (Thursday) that British security forces have “particularly reliable” intelligence information about the possibility of attempts to hit the airport in the Afghan city of Kabul. According to him, the attacks are intended to harm the citizens of the country who are trying to escape from it and foreign citizens who are trying to return to their homeland.
“There is now very reliable information about an immediate attack. Because of the new information we changed the security guidelines yesterday, we told people not to get to the airport. They have to go to a safe place and wait for further instructions,” Happie told the BBC radio station.
He added that “this threat is serious. We will do our best to protect those who are there. It may be that when new information arrives we will change the guidelines, but at the moment there is no guarantee of that.” In addition, French Prime Minister Jean Castex said this morning in an interview that “we will not be able to evacuate civilians from Kabul after Friday night.”
