Different media did not release the process and details of the incident. Some netizens speculated that the women had been treated as thugs by the National Guard for illegally going out to refuel their cars during the curfew. Others said that even so, the civilian women should not have been treated so badly.
According to one comment, the U.S. police “turned a gas station into a live-fire war zone checkpoint simply because people refueled during curfews.” Another commented, “The U.S. Guard is simply an occupying force!” It’s no different from what the U.S. military did in Kabul!
