On Sunday, the US targeted suspected terrorists by conducting an airstrike in Kabul.
The US says that these Islamic State terrorists were suicide bombers and were going to attack Kabul airport.
The US has also acknowledged that civilians were harmed in this attack. American media quoted eyewitnesses as saying that nine people from a family, including six children, were killed in the airstrike.
America was alert about terrorist attack
US President Joe Biden said last day that he had reliable information that an attack could happen near Kabul airport in the next few hours.
Amidst this warning, information about an airstrike came to light near the airport on Sunday evening. The US said it had targeted Islamic State Khorasan (ISIS-K) terrorists who were a security threat.
Let me tell you, Islamic State has already attacked in Kabul.
Damage caused by explosives kept in the vehicle – America
Initially, it was said from the US that there was no harm to the general public in the airstrike, but later it was told that the general public was harmed due to the explosion of the explosive kept in the vehicle on which the airstrike was done.
The US military had said in its statement that the second explosion in the vehicle meant that a large amount of explosive material was kept in it.
Central command said this thing
Captain Bill Urban, a spokesman for the US Central Command, said: “We are aware of casualties caused by an airstrike on a vehicle in Kabul. We are deeply saddened by the loss of an innocent life.”

Taliban condemns airstrike
The Taliban condemned the airstrike on a suspected Islamic State terrorist, saying the US violated Afghanistan’s sovereignty. Its spokesman Bilal Karimi said that such operations on the soil of others are not good and the US should have informed about it earlier.
“We will condemn the United States whenever it conducts such a campaign,” Karimi said.
Let us tell you that this strike took place at 5 pm local time.
