American bombers have been scrambled to Afghanistan in what is thought to be a retaliatory attack.
According to Russian military intelligence, four American bombers [B-52 and B-2 Spirit] are already en route to Afghanistan for possible preparation of air bombing in response to yesterday’s terrorist attacks at Kabul airport.
The information has not yet been officially confirmed, but it comes against the background of the already issued order of US President Joe Biden to strike at terrorists and their buildings by the terrorist group ISIS-K.
President Biden denounced the terrorist attack at the Kabul airport that killed at least 13 American service members and injured 18 more, saying that the frantic evacuation of U.S. citizens and allies from Afghanistan will continue even as he pledged to hunt down those responsible for the attacks.
Mr. Biden spoke after the U.S. military sustained one of its highest single-day American tolls during its 20-year Afghanistan campaign.
“To those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone who wishes America harm, know this: We will not forgive. We will not forget- We will hunt you down and make you pay,” said the President in a press briefing held at the Whitehouse in Washington DC.
The bombs were set off near a crowd of families at the airport gates who were desperately hoping to make one of the last evacuation flights out. Loud gunfire was reported in the aftermath of the deadly explosions.
