Troops disabled equipment before abandoning at Kabul airport

WASHINGTON — U.S. troops disabled 170 vehicles, aircraft and weapons systems that they abandoned Monday at the Kabul airport before the remaining American service members in Afghanistan boarded the last flights out of the country, the top U.S. commander in the region said.

About 70 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles, 27 Humvees and 73 aircraft were “demilitarized” by the U.S. at Hamid Karzai International Airport before they left Kabul for the last time, said Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command.

“They’ll never be able to be operated by anyone,” McKenzie said of the equipment. “Most of them were non-mission capable to begin with.”

McKenzie did not say what kind of aircraft were among the 73 left behind at the airport, where U.S. forces helped more than 123,000 people evacuate the country since late July. Most of those evacuation flights took place after Aug. 14 when thousands of U.S. troops deployed to the Kabul airport to ramp up withdrawal efforts as the Taliban closed in on the city.
