The Taliban expressed condemnation for the Islamist State militant group’s (ISIS) attack, which killed 13 American service members and hundreds of Afghans.
“The Islamic Emirate strongly condemns the bombing of civilians at Kabul airport. … The Islamic Emirate is very concerned about the security and protection of its people. The evil circles will be stopped in full force,” Tweeted Zabihullah Mujahid, the Islamist terrorist’s spokesperson. Hours after the incident, ISIS claimed responsibility and warned of future attacks.
In a statement, ISIS said, “Let the crusaders and their agents know that the soldiers of the caliphate will continue to fight them until God decrees a matter that has been done.” Despite the attack, and the threats of more in the coming days, the Biden administration decided to maintain their August 31st deadline for evacuating American citizens, military, and Afghans.
FBA reported, “Biden asked his national security team to create contingency plans in case a situation arose for which the deadline needed to be extended slightly, the official said. The US has repeatedly stressed the risk of continuing the airlift, due to threats of violence by the Islamic State group’s Afghanistan affiliate.”
