Afghanistan is currently in internal turmoil following the Taliban takeover. Meanwhile, tensions in the country seem to have escalated following a series of blasts at the Kabul airport, leaving 72 dead and over 140 being injured.

While the entire world mourns the sorry situation of the country and prays for peace to return, the Afghan cricketers have been left heartbroken by the same. Top cricketers Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi took to social media on Thursday to express their pain.

“Kabul is bleeding again. STOP KILLING AFGHAN, PLEASE,” said Rashid Khan in a tweet.

It is not the first time Rashid has responded to the current situation. On August 10, he had written, “Dear World Leaders! My country is in chaos. Thousands of innocent people, including children & women, get martyred every day, houses & properties being destructed. Thousand families displaced. Don’t leave us in chaos. Stop killing Afghans & destroying Afghanistan. We want peace.”

Rashid recently took part in The Hundred tournament for Trent Rockets. He also steered Sussex Sharks to the final of the T20 Blast.

Meanwhile, Nabi wrote, “I express my deepest condolences to my countrymen lost their lives in today’s attack in the vicinity of Kabul airport. We condemn such attacks on the strongest possible terms and urge the world to help Afghans get through these tough times.”

In the meantime, the US military has vowed to hunt down the leaders of the Islamic State, which claimed responsibility for the suicide attack. In a statement, the ISIS-K said that the target of the attack were translators and collaborators with the US Army.
