The two explosions outside Kabul’s airport that killed 12 US service members and at least 60 Afghans have rattled the White House. Vowing to continue evacuations from Afghanistan, US President Joe Biden and US intelligence promised to avenge the deaths, declaring to the extremists responsible.
“We will hunt you down and make you pay,” said the supremo speaking with emotion from the White House. He said he had instructed military commanders to develop plans to strike ISIS assets, leadership and facilities. It is to the known knowledge that the Islamic State Islamic State has officially claimed responsibility for the Kabul airport attack.
As per the reports, many as 1,000 Americans and many more Afghans are still struggling to get out of Kabul. Thursday’s attacks were sure to intensify political pressure from all sides on Biden, who already was under heavy criticism for not beginning the pullout earlier.
