The Wall Street Journal reported that the Biden administration was considering commissioning the Civilian Reserve Air Squadron, established in 1952 after World War II, which required private airlines to support the air transport needs of the US Department of Defense in an emergency.
According to the report, the White House plans to supply 20 planes from 5 commercial airlines to transport evacuees from Kabul to the United States from bases in the regions.
Commercial planes will not fly to Kabul, but will carry Afghans evacuated and brought to US bases in Qatar, Bahrain and Germany to the United States.
According to the US Department of Defense, 17,000 people, including 2,500 US citizens, have been evacuated from Kabul since August 14.
As part of the peace agreement reached between the United States and the Taliban in February 2020, the process of withdrawing international forces from Afghanistan began this year.
While the agreement stipulated not to attack foreign forces, it did not provide for the actions of the Taliban against the Afghan security forces.
