MADRID, AUG 25 – A wait that lasted 11 years: they had to endure it before being able to embrace again Sharifa, interpreter of the Spanish Ministry of Inclusion, and her family members who remained in Afghanistan. The forced distance is over today: part of Sharifa’s family has in fact landed on the runway of the military base of Torrejón de Ardoz, near Madrid, after being evacuated from Kabul under the responsibility of the Iberian authorities. And so, the long-awaited hug arrived, immortalized in an image released by the same ministry on Twitter. “It is a moving encounter”, commented the owner of this department, José Luis Escrivá. “Cases like this encourage us to continue working to accommodate as many displaced people from Afghanistan as possible,” he added. The interpreter’s family arrived on a flight that carried a total of 292 people. (HANDLE).
