Disturbing video from Kabul shows Taliban fighters beating Afghans trying to make their way to the airport, according to a former contract employee who worked for the United States.
The Afghan man, who was a State Department contractor, told Fox News the Taliban has set up checkpoints throughout the capital city looking for those who were employed by the U.S.
They are also going through neighborhoods looking for them and asking neighbors about them.
Video obtained by Fox reportedly shows Taliban fighters kicking a man in the face in the back of a pickup truck, and in other footage, people can be seen being whipped as they walk by.
The former contractor recounted that outside of the Kabul airport, “The Taliban [were] beating people and the people were jumping from the fence, the concertina wire, and also the wall.”
He estimated that 10,000 or more were trying to make their way to the airport on Monday.

Other footage shows a chaotic scene as people who appear to be Taliban fighters fire gunshots in crowds outside of the airport.
“Flights were temporarily suspended from Kabul International Airport on Monday as U.S. forces attempted to gain control of the crowd of Afghans desperate to leave the country,” Fox reported.
