US bans low altitude flights over Afghanistan due to surge in militant activities
Heads up! Or not... (ooops!)
[KhaamaPress] The United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) restricted low-altitude flights over Afghanistan citing the recent rise in Death Eater activities.

The emergency order by FAA effective Sunday has excluded US military aircraft from the order and the latter can still fly as regular.

As per the new order, US airlines cannot fly below 8,000km in the Kabul Flight Information Region unless the operations are in and out of Hamid Maybe I'll join the Taliban Karzai

International Airport in the Afghan capital, Kabul.

The move by Afghanistan’s biggest ally —the US- is unprecedented in the past twenty years.

The US regulatory orders the limitations two days after US CENTCOM commander General McKenzie announced US military preparation for intensifying Arclight airstrike

The new intensified aerial strikes will probably be conducted until the full withdrawal of the US forces-August 31- but General McKenzie acknowledged that the support to Afghan National Defense and Security Forces will continue even beyond the deadline.

Afghanistan’s key International Airport’s-Hamid Karzai International Airport- security is to be handed over to Ottoman Turkish troops to ensure smooth operation of the airport.

Puzzling as a vast majority commercial flights in and out of Hamid Karzai International Airport (oKAB) are NON-USA and not controlled by
the US FAA.

Plus most commercial jets are already fly high due to the 16,000 to 24,000 ft mountain ranges of the area?

Question: Does the FAA have authority over US Military Aircraft in the Camp Dwyer area?

#2 Below 8,000km?

Well, I guess Starlink is safe.
