As per a report on San Antonio Express-News, the family of a San Antonio man that had been stuck in Afghanistan after the Taliban took over the country last month returned home safely on 23 September 2021.
As per the report, Mohammad (full name not used), who served as an interpreter for the U.S. Army in Afghanistan, said his wife and five children finally left the country on September 17 on a Qatar Airways flight.
The report said that Mohammad had been trying to find a safe way for his family to leave the country and his family found a flight last week. According to NPR, that flight was arranged by Qatari authorities and the U.S. State Department and included 28 U.S. citizens and seven passengers with permanent visas.
"We're happy, but also sad for the many other family members that are left behind and are facing difficult conditions," Mohammad said.
Mohammad said he is hopeful members of his extended family will get to leave Afghanistan soon, as per the report.
