Taliban fighters have been left feeling ‘angry’ and ‘betrayed’ after discovering the US had disabled military helicopters and planes before their departure from Kabul.

US troops ‘demilitarised’ 73 aircraft before their departure this week according to the commander of the US evacuation mission, Gen. Frank McKenzie.

That left up to 48 aircraft in the hands of the terror group, although it was not known how many were operable.

But the Taliban had ‘expected the Americans to leave helicopters like this in one piece for their use’, according to an Al Jazeera reporter who toured the airport after the withdrawal.

She said: ‘When I said to them, “why do you think that the Americans would have left everything operational for you?” They said because we believe it is a national asset and we are the government now and this could have come to great use for us.’

She added: ‘They are disappointed, they are angry, they feel betrayed because all of this equipment is broken beyond repair.’
