  • The Taliban entered Kabul on August 15, which resulted in the collapse of the US-backed government

DUBAI: The UAE dispatched Friday a plane carrying urgent medical and food aid to Afghanistan, state news agency WAM reported.

A severe humanitarian crisis has gripped Afghanistan following the withdrawal of US forces last month, leading to the capture of Kabul by the Taliban. 

It is the latest in an ongoing humanitarian aid for Afghan people being provided by the UAE, WAM reported.
 
The UAE has agreed to take in 5,000 Afghan refugees fleeing the Taliban-run Afghanistan, hosting them temporarily in Abu Dhabi in specially constructed housing units.
