America Retaliates, as It Uses Drone Strike On The Man Who Planned the Afghan Suicide Bombing

An attack that left at least 170 people dead and hundreds injured, in an Afghanistan airport, has since made the news and become a reason for several controversial conversations. The attack that created such buzz in the media saw the US president in an emotional state on live television, pledging to hunt down those who were responsible for the attack. 

Making good of his words and promise, the news of a pentagon drone strike has reached the media, with reports that the strike successfully killed the planner behind the ISIS suicide bombing at Kabul airport that left more than 170 people dead. 

According to sources, as revealed by the media agents of the pentagon, and government agencies, the drone strike that has also become an interesting source of conversation, struck the ISIS fighter, while the man was driving in his car with another Islamic State Associate in Nangahar province, eastern Afghanistan. US officials said the strike was approved by President Joe Biden. 

The Attack from the US government is coming as a retaliation to the earlier attack by the ISIS-K a group said to be a splinter group of the Taliban and internationally affiliated with the Islamic State. The Attack was carried out through a suicide bomber who carefully detonated a bomb where dozens of people were standing, trying to lobby to get on the evacuation flights organized by the US government. According to sources, at least 13 U.S soldiers lost their lives, excluding the number of Afghans who were killed and injured. 

U.S. Navy spokesman William Urban confirmed the military "conducted an over-the-horizon counterterrorism operation today against an ISIS-K planner."

"Initial indications are that we killed the target. We know of no civilian casualties," he also mentioned. 

Already, the evacuation story has become quite intense, with some people pushing the US government to begin to push for an extension in the dates pre-approved by the Taliban. 

Meanwhile, Britain's rescue operation and the time given to the country by the Taliban for its evacuation process will come to an end today, this means that at least 1,250 Afghans who have been deemed eligible to take refuge in the UK, as well as at least 150 Britain citizens, might as well be left behind. 

Gen. Sir Nick Carter said on Saturday: "We haven't been able to take everyone out and that is heartbreaking. We think that we've got most of the Afghans but I think there will be high hundreds who won't have come out ... and something has prevented them from coming, rather than any processing problem from our perspective."

He had also spoken on the issue when he explained that the situation of things in the past few days at the Afghan airport, has been extremely difficult for the US troops." Few days acting as the 'rearguard to the withdrawal," he added. 

He continued to explain by stating that he among others believe that American allies in the country would be facing a very difficult time, and would be very challenged because "the threat from ISIS-K has not gone away and of course there are still lots of desperate Afghans trying to get out," Sir Nick said.

According to him, the number of those who have been supposedly evacuated from the Kabul Airport where everything seems to be happening has since been totaled to about 14,543, as at last night. "People had now been extracted from Kabul since August 13, a mix of Afghan and British nationals, and that now the focus would turn to get diplomats and service personnel out," he said.
