When Joe Biden told Americans he was considering extending the deadline for removing our troops from Afghanistan beyond August 31st, the Taliban told Joe, “no!”.
When Joe Biden’s regime gave the Taliban terror group a list of US citizens and Afghan allies they were planning to evacuate, the Taliban beat them at checkpoints leading into the airport. They hunted down allies at their homes and executed them in the streets.
After Islamic terrorists blew themselves up outside of the Kabul airport, killing 13 US military members and injuring and killing an untold number of individuals waiting outside of the airport to be rescued, Joe Biden threatened he would make them pay.
The Taliban has now sealed off all paths to the airport, giving Americans and Afghans little hope of being rescued within the August 31st deadline.
Last night, the US conducted a drone strike on ISIS-K suspects they believed to be responsible for the planning and facilitating of future attacks in Kabul. US officials did not name the ISIS-K terror targets they took out. The Pentagon claims they waited for the wife and children of one of their targets to be separated from them before the strike.
Daily Mail reports – ‘The Americans should have informed us before conducting the airstrike,’ spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters on Saturday, as the U.S. military rushes into the final evacuation of Kabul airport ahead of the Tuesday deadline set by President Joe Biden.
Taliban terror spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid tweeted about Reuters publishing fake news. He asked the media and journalists not to take the quotes from Reuters seriously, saying they distorted his words.
Mujahid claimed that two women and a child were wounded in the drone strike. The Pentagon says it is not aware of any civilian casualties.
The Pentagon earlier confirmed that two ISIS-K targets were killed and one wounded in the drone strike responding to the suicide attack in Kabul, after earlier confirming only one kill.
The two killed targets were ‘high profile’ but were not senior members of ISIS-K, Army Major Gen. William D. ‘Hank’ Taylor said at a Pentagon briefing on Saturday, saying there were no known civilian casualties.
The retaliatory strike was launched a day after an ISIS-K suicide bomber blew himself up outside the walls of Kabul airport, killing 13 US troops and scores of Afghan civilians.
The terror threat at the airport remains ‘very real’ and ‘very dynamic’ Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said on Saturday.
‘Threats are still very real, they’re very dynamic, and we are monitoring them literally in real-time. And as I said yesterday, we’re taking all the means necessary to make sure we remain focused on that threat stream and doing what we can for force protection,’ Kirby said at a briefing.
