Since the Taliban has taken over most of northern Afghanistan, Sara Carter caught up with a friend from the area on the latest episode of the Sara Carter Show. Now that U.S. troops are leaving, the Taliban has replaced them. On the phone her friend told her they’re desperate to get out of the country but risk losing their lives for trying. They will remain anonymous for their safety.

During her time covering Afghanistan as a reporter, she traveled with this friend and their family started to feel like her family. Now, they live in Kabul and the Taliban is nearing the capital city.

“We have not any where to go out from,” the friend said describing how trapped they are in the city. “They will kill us. We don’t have any choice.”

“So you’re saying that there’s no other choice,” Carter said. “The Taliban will kill you if they get to your house.”

“Come down to Kabul there is no chance to be alive because there’s no any way to escape from all around the province or taken by Taliban,” the friend explained. Another impossible option is to pay smugglers $20,000 a head to sneak out of the country.

“My heart’s breaking,” Carter told her friend. “I wish I could get to Afghanistan right now. I feel it would kill me if I go in though.”

“Don’t try to come down to Afghanistan,” they respond.

“This could be like another, you know, Saigon moment or something,” Carter said “But far worse, the Taliban will take no prisoners, they will slaughter them. And I, you know, my hearts broken, I don’t know what I can do.”

Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki sounded hopeful about the Taliban turning around. “The Taliban also has to make an assessment about what they want their role to be in the international community,” Psaki said.

Iran nuclear weapons program

The U.S., U.K, France, and Jordan came together with Israel to intercept the onslaught of Iranian drones targeting Israel, according to multiple reports.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded defiantly, saying his country is “strong” and prepared to defend itself from any threat.

“Our defense systems are deployed, and we are prepared for any scenario, both in defense and offense. The State of Israel is strong, the IDF is strong, the public is strong,” Netanyahu said.

“We appreciate the US for standing by Israel’s side as well as the support of the UK, France and many other countries,” he continued.

“I established a clear principle — whoever hurts us, we will hurt them. We will defend ourselves from any threat and we will do so calmly and with determination.”

In conjunction with the attack, Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei launched a tirade against Israel on Saturday and blamed the Jewish state for the recent attack on an Iranian compound in Damascus, Syria.

“The malicious regime has made a wrong move in this case. It should be punished and it will be punished,” he said of Israel.

National Review reports:

Iran typically targets Israel through its network of well-resourced regional proxies such as Hamas and Hezbollah. Israel continues to fights its war against Hamas sparked by the terrorist group’s mass civilian slaughter and rape on October 7.

Hamas rejected another temporary cease-fire proposal after negotiations began in Cairo, Egypt last weekend between U.S., Qatari, and Egyptian officials. The cease-fire proposal would have seen Israel exchange hundreds of Gazan prisoners for dozens of the hostages held in captivity by Hamas.

As for injuries, a seven-year-old girl suffered severe injuries from shrapnel that fell directly onto her home. She was rushed to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery for a head wound. An estimated 31 people in total were treated for stress and minor injuries.
