The United States has launched an airstrike on an Islamic State-linked vehicle in Kabul

The Islamic State vehicle was the target of a US attack in Kabul on Sunday.

The Pentagon announced on Sunday that the United States had carried out a “defensive” drone strike in Kabul against a vehicle loaded with explosives to quell Dash’s “immediate threat” in Corrosion (IS-K) against the airport.

“US forces today launched a defensive ‘drone’ air strike from outside Afghanistan,” he said, removing an immediate IS-K threat to an international airport against a vehicle in Kabul. “Hamid Karzai, Federal Spokesman Bill Urban said in the order that” we firmly believe that we have reached the goal, “he added.

The new attack is “more likely,” Biden says

“We are testing the possibility of civilian casualties,” he said, adding that “nothing at this time.”

“Strong secondary explosions from the vehicle showed a significant amount of ammunition,” he added. “We are alert to future threats.”

Joe Biden said on Saturday that a new attack was “highly possible” in the wake of the IS-K attack on Kabul airport on Thursday, which killed more than a hundred people, including 13 U.S. soldiers.

In response, the United States carried out a drone strike in Afghanistan, killing two ISIS operatives and injuring one-third, warning that it would not be the “last.”

News of the latest airstrikes fell with the families of those airmen as the US president and his wife, Jill Biden, arrived at the Dover military base east of Washington on Sunday morning. They will pay tribute to their body at noon (4pm GMT).
