A second batch of Turkish troops evacuated from the Afghan capital Kabul landed home in the Turkish capital on Friday.

The plane carrying Turkish Armed Forces personnel from Afghanistan landed in Ankara at 13.10 p.m. local time (1010GMT).

The group first traveled from Kabul to Islamabad, Pakistan’s capital, via a Turkish Air Force transport plane, then proceeded to Ankara on a flight run by flag carrier Turkish Airlines.

Friday’s flight follows Thursday’s first evacuation plane to arrive in Ankara from Kabul, carrying 345 armed forces personnel.
