5 Missiles Fired Towards Kabul Airport As US Evacuation Operation Winds To An End

Published

on

Several rockets fired towards Hamid Karzai International Airport Kabul have been intercepted by America’s missile defence system as the final hour of evacuation by the US and its allies winds down.

This is coming a day before the deadline for the US troops to pull out of Afghanistan and Afghanistan’s arm of ISIL-K, a fractional part of Islamic State ISIS has claimed responsibility.

The White House has said the evacuation going on in Kabul will not be interrupted. US President Joe Biden was briefed about the latest rocket attack on Monday morning and the president reconfirmed his order for commanders to do “whatever is necessary to protect our forces on the ground.”

Afghan media reported that the attack was launched from the back of a vehicle.

The attack is coming just a day after the US forces launched a drone strike that it said killed suicide bombers attempting to carry out a mission at the airport, but media reports say several children were killed in the incident that destroyed a car laden with explosives.

A suicide bomber on Thursday had detonated a bomb that killed over 170 Afghans and 13 US servicemen at the airport.
