What did you miss?
And barely 62 Dutch soldiers, who helped collect the evacuees after the fall of Kabul, had just left the city’s airport. This was reported by De Telegraaf and Nu Enel based on the responses of defense and military personnel who were at the site.
During the operation, Ministers Bielefeld (Defence) and Sigrid Kaag (Foreign Affairs) wrote in a letter to Parliament that everything possible had been done to evacuate people “at the Kabul airport” and that the army would assist in this. In fact, this does not mean that they drove cars on the streets of the Afghan capital.
