Footage of militants attempting to pilot the US Black Hawk helicopters was shared on Twitter by Jahid Jalal.

"Parts of Kabul airport have been conquered, clearing is underway and the American occupiers are taking over. The airport will soon be fully under the control of the Islamic Emirate’s Mujahideen. God willing," he tweeted on Wednesday.

"Preparing for flights at Kandahar Airport, the wrecked Black Hawk American helicopter was built and ready for operation," Jalal continued.

"They expelled the Americans with Kalashnikovs and RPGs. What well [sic] they do having those toys with them," one user wrote under the video.

Jalal replied: "This is what we do with the occupiers."

Jalal has also shared a video of Al-Fatah, a ballistic missile that can carry up to five kilograms of bombs.

"I don’t have an exact inventory of what equipment, that the Afghans have at their disposal that now might be at risk," a Pentagon spokesman told the Independent.
