Were images of a crashed helicopter and destroyed homes taken less than 24 hours after the Taliban took control of Kabul, Afghanistan's capital city? No, that's not true: The images are stills of multiplayer maps from the video game Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and are not related to the conflict in Afghanistan in any way. Additionally, the images were posted on a satire page.
The claim appeared in an August 17, 2021, Facebook post (archived here) by the Facebook page Allratesmatter. The post features digitized images of a crashed helicopter in a residential area with destroyed homes and rubble. The caption is:
This picture was taken in Kabul less than 24 hours after the taliban took control...

Screenshots of the stills in the Google search are included below:
