Kabul airport attack

According to the military, the US launched a drone strike in Kabul on Saturday against an Islamic State member suspected of preparing strikes against the US. The strike took place in Nangarhar province, east of Kabul, according to the US Central Command."Initial indications are that we killed the target. We know of no civilian casualties," a US military statement stated.On Thursday,

US President Joe Biden vowed to find the culprits of the Kabul airport attack and claimed he has directed the Pentagon to devise preparations to target them. "We're not going to forgive, and we're not going to forget. We'll track you down and hold you accountable, "Biden stated.President Biden observed a minute of quiet and expressed his sympathies to the families of US service members killed in the Kabul bombing, describing the victims as "heroes" and "the finest the country has to offer."Around 5,000 US troops are stationed at Kabul's airport, assisting in the evacuation of American residents, at-risk Afghans, and other nations before Biden's deadline on Tuesday.The strike came just one day after a horrific blast at Kabul International Airport, which killed 13 US personnel and over 200 Afghans.

The Kabul attack was one of the bloodiest for US troops in Afghanistan in over a decade. A device exploded outside a gate of Hamid Karzai International Airport, and gunfire erupted.Meanwhile, the Taliban claimed possession of parts of Kabul's international airport as the United States and its allies prepare to leave on August 31, the deadline set for the evacuations to be completed. The military side, however, remains with the US and its partners, according to US State Department spokesperson Ned Price. He also promised that he would "return Kabul Airport to the Afghan people."
