US preparing for Taliban attacks during Afghan withdrawal

The Pentagon is anticipating possible attacks on US military personnel as the US withdrawal from Afghanistan proceeds past the May 1 date negotiated by the Trump administration in a February 2020 deal with the Taliban, reported the Associated Press.

According to the agreement, May 1 was the date in which all American and coalition forces were to have left the country. As part of the deal, the Taliban ceased attacks on US forces. None have been killed since that time.
