Afghanistan-US Drone Strike On ISIS-K After Kabul Airport Blasts

Taliban seizing Afghanistan has actually been a worry not only in Afghanistan but all over the world.Yesterday’s blast in the Kabul airport has once again proved Taliban’s stance on their so-called “peaceful administration” leading to death of several soldiers and civilian casualties.This incident provoked American president Joe Biden and he assured the world that he would seek revenge for the bloodshed.

US Strikes Back With A Drone Attack

The United States on Friday launched a drone strike against a ‘planner’ of Islamic State attack, a day after a suicide bombing at Kabul airport killed 13 U.S. troops and scores of Afghan civilians. The US military in a statement announced that “We know of no civilian casualties.”

ISIS members arrested- Taliban

Taliban cleared their status announcing that they have arrested the ISIS militants who were behind the attacks.”They are being interrogated by our intelligence team,” the commander said.

Well the irony is that earlier Taliban was amongst the group which linked with ISIS many times and backed them in various situations.Now they are switching towards getting a clean chit by claiming to have arrested those terrorists.
