Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff general Mark Milley warned that Afghanistan would likely descend into a state of civil war following the U.S. withdrawal from the country, in an interview with Fox News on Saturday.

Speaking at Ramstein Air Base in Germany, where U.S. forces are processing 17,000 Afghans who fled the country after the Taliban assumed control, Milley said Afghanistan could see a “resurgence” in terrorist activity within the next one to three years.

“My military estimate is that the conditions are likely to develop of a civil war. I don’t know if the Taliban is going to [be] able to consolidate power and establish governance,” Milley told Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffin.
