The death toll in a series of bomb blasts outside the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan’s capital on Thursday, continues to rise. So far 90 people have died in this blast while more than 150 people are said to be injured. The world’s dreaded terrorist organization ISIS-K has taken responsibility for this suicide attack. Twelve US security personnel, including 11 Marine commandos and a medic, have also been killed in two successive bombings and some gunmen firing at the crowd.
Regarding this attack, US President Joe Biden has criticised those responsible for the attack and said that we will find them and kill them. You have to pay the price for it. President Joe Biden told the attackers of Kabul – we will not forgive you, we will not forget. We will find and hunt you and you will have to pay the price. However, US President Joe Biden said there was no evidence so far of collusion between the Taliban and Islamic State in the Kabul airport attacks.
Speaking at the White House, US President Joe Biden said that we will rescue American citizens trapped in Afghanistan. We will take out our Afghan allies and our mission will continue. More than 100,000 people have been evacuated from Afghanistan since August 14, according to an AFP news agency report quoting the White House. The US has pulled out of Afghanistan out of 7,500 people in the last 24 hours.
Flag will remain half-masted in America till August 30:

Amrullah Saleh, who was the Vice President of Afghanistan, has put the Taliban and Pakistan in the dock in the case of the horrific suicide attack by the terrorist organization ISIS at Kabul Airport. Saleh said that all the evidence we have shows that the roots of ISIS fighters are particularly linked to the Taliban and the Haqqani network. He also targeted Pakistan.
Saleh said that all the evidence we have shows that the roots of ISIS fighters are particularly linked to the Taliban and the Haqqani network. He also targeted Pakistan. “All the evidence we have right now suggests that IS-K members have their roots in the Taliban and especially the Haqqani network, which is currently active in Kabul,” Saleh tweeted
The Taliban reject their ties with ISIS, but this is in the same way that Pakistan treats the Taliban’s Quetta Shura. The Taliban have learned a lot from their master (Pakistan).
