(Worthy News) – Around 53,000 Afghan evacuees are currently living on eight military bases in the United States as part of the Biden Administration’s Operation Allies Welcome, General Glen VanHerck, the Commander of US Northern Command, told a Pentagon briefing on Thursday.
Another 14,000 Afghans will be arriving soon, once the evacuation flights resume in various foreign countries. Those flights were suspended several weeks ago because of a measles outbreak among the evacuees.
“And how long are the Afghans going to be on U.S. military bases?” a reporter asked VanHerk:
“That’s a great question,” VanHerk responded. “We’re prepared to be here as long as we need to, to conduct this mission. That’s best addressed by DHS, the lead federal agency. We stand ready to support. We’ll be ready if we need to support through the winter months and into the spring.” [ Source: CNS News (Read More…) ]
