German Of The Day: Unter Beschuss

That means under fire.

Thank goodness Joe Biden has “made progress” and continues to have the situation under control.

A firefight broke out between unidentified gunmen, Western security forces and Afghan guards at the North Gate of Kabul airport on Monday, Germany’s armed forces said, as thousands of Afghans and foreigners thronged the airport, seeking to flee Taliban rule.

One Afghan guard was killed and three others were injured in the battle, which also involved US and German forces, the German military said on Twitter, without specifying whether the dead Afghan was one of the Taliban fighters deployed to guard the airport.

In dem Gefecht seien eine afghanische Sicherheitskraft getötet und drei weitere verletzt worden, meldete die Bundeswehr auf Twitter. Demnach ereignete sich der Angriff um 4.13 Uhr deutscher Zeit.
