Australian soldiers entertained recently evacuated Afghan children by singing “Baby Shark” at a UAE air base, footage published on August 30 showed.

This footage was captured by RTA journalist Khalid Amiri. He captioned the footage, “Members of the Australian Defense Force entertaining #Afghan Refugee kids in a camp at UAE. These children & their families have been evacuated from #Afghanistan by the Australian Government.”

Some 4,100 people were evacuated from Afghanistan by the Australian government, according to Prime Minister Scott Morrison. Amiri was among the evacuees.

He tweeted, “To leave home, to leave what’s yours is the most dejecting feeling. Today I hv Landed in #Australia & I’m happy to call it my new home. Grateful to the Australian Govt & its Ppl for their generosity & help n evacuating me & othr Afghans n a very safe & dignified manner.” Credit: @KhalidAmiri01 via Storyful
