Afghanistan: two “important” targets of Daesh killed in an American strike

The Pentagon announced on Saturday that “two important targets” of the Daesh group, “organizers” and “operators”, had been killed and one injured in a drone strike by the United States carried out in Afghanistan, without revealing their names.

“I can confirm, now that we have received more information, that two important ISIS targets were killed and one injured” in the strike launched on Saturday from outside Afghanistan, he said. .

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby declined to explain whether they were directly involved in Thursday’s bombing near Kabul airport, which killed more than 100 people, including 13 US soldiers.

The Americans still remain vigilant about the repercussions of a “still active threat”. “It is a good thing that these two individuals are no longer on the surface of the Earth,” continued John Kirby.

Evacuation operations are still ongoing. “In fact, there are around 1,400 people at Kabul airport who have been screened and checked in for flights today,” General Taylor said.
