Airstrike Takes Out ISIS-K Target Who Planned Kabul Terrorist Attack According to U.S. Central Command

It has been reported by multiple sources tonight that an airstrike has taken out an ISIS-K target who planned the terrorist attack in Kabul yesterday.

The reports stated that the information comes from the U.S. Central Command.

According to Jennifer Griffin with Fox News, “U.S. military forces conducted an over-the-horizon counterterrorism operation today against an ISIS-K planner. The unmanned airstrike occurred in the Nangahar Province of Afghanistan. Initial indications are that we killed the target. We know of no civilian casualties,” CENTCOM.

Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra quote tweeted Griffin and asserted, “Donald Trump would have killed hundreds of ISIS terrorists after they killed 13 U.S. soldiers. Biden only killed one.”

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins also tweeted about the news.

“The U.S. has conducted an airstrike against an ISIS-K planner, per spokesman for Central Command.”

“‘Initial indications are that we killed the target,’ Central Command spokesman Capt. Bill Urban says in a statement. ‘We know of no civilian casualties.'”

We previously reported that ISIS-K is the terrorist group that claimed responsibility for yesterday’s attack in Kabul, which killed 13 U.S. service members and at least 170 Afghans.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said earlier today that “thousands” of ISIS-K prisoners were released after the Taliban took over the country.

In response to a reporter who asked how many how many prisoners were left at Bagram Air Base, Kirby explained, “I don’t know the exact number. Clearly, it’s in the thousands when you consider both prisons, because both of them were taken over by the Taliban and emptied. But I couldn’t give you a precise figure.”
