Pentagon says US drone strike killed two high profile ISIS targets in Afghanistan

The US military launched a drone strike against ISIS-K in retaliation for the deadly bombing at the Kabul airport. Pentagon announced that the drone strike by US military targeted an ISIS-K planner of Kabul blast.

This is the first American attack on the terrorist group following Thursday’s bomb attack at Kabul airport. Just before the Pentagon announced the strike, the State Department issued a fresh alert, telling Americans at four Kabul airport gates to leave immediately.

Earlier, Pentagon warned of specific, credible terrorist threats from ISIS-K to US troops and civilians fleeing Afghanistan after Thursday’s devastating Kabul airport attack.
President Joe Biden has vowed retaliation against ISIS-K. He said the US will hunt down the terrorists and make them pay.
