The spokesman for the United States Central Command, Bill Urban, has confirmed that his country has carried out a drone attack against a vehicle that threatened the Kabul airport.
“US military forces today carried out an unmanned self-defense air strike against a vehicle in Kabul, eliminating an imminent threat from the Islamic State to Kabul International Airport,” Urban wrote in a statement yesterday.
“We are confident that we have reached the goal successfully. Significant secondary explosions from the vehicle indicated the presence of a substantial amount of explosive material, “he added, ensuring that no civilian casualties were reported after the attack.
The Al Jazeera network reported that a child was killed and three people were injured in the blast. The TOLONews chain indicated that the attack hit the building in the Khaja Baghra area, near the Kabul airport.
The Taliban rejected the attacks carried out by US forces against targets of the jihadist group Islamic State (IS) in Kabul, because those actions are not part of the agreement signed for the withdrawal. / Agencies.
