Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has called upon the UK Government to help resettle Afghan refugees in the wake of the Taliban takeover of the country.

Marie said: UK Jews will share the world’s horror at the scenes unfolding in Afghanistan. The Taliban’s sickening record of the repression of women and girls, and complete disregard for human rights, fill us all with great anxiety for the Afghan people. We call on the UK Government to expand on its plans for the resettlement of Afghan refugees, to whom the world now owes a duty of care and moral responsibility.
