The United States launched a drone strike Friday night (August 27, GMT) against an Islamic State target in eastern Afghanistan, killing members of the group, the U.S. Armed Forces say.
According to a press release, 170 people, including 13 U.S. soldiers, were killed in an attack targeting a planned attack on Kabul airport on Thursday in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the bombing of an airport in the Afghan capital.
“Preliminary evidence shows that we killed the target,” said U.S. forces.
The target is a member of the ISIS-Q group, which represents the Islamic State of the Islamic State (also known as ISIS) in Afghanistan and Pakistan. In Afghanistan, this is a very violent and radical group Jihadist (This promotes what the Muslim so-called “holy war”).
Thursday’s attacks hit a crowd of men, women and children outside Kabul airport. They tried to leave the country after the Taliban Islamic fundamentalist group came to power in Afghanistan.
Earlier this Friday, US President Joe Biden promised to continue the attack on the airport, where 5,000 U.S. troops are still stationed.
“We are not going to forgive, we are not going to forget. We are going to hunt them down and pay them,” the Democrat said.
