Daesh , Attack

The United States launched a drone strike against a Daesh attack "planner" in eastern Afghanistan, the military said on Friday, a day after a suicide bombing at Kabul airport killed 13 US troops and scores of Afghan civilians.

The drone strike took place in Nangarhar province, east of Kabul and bordering Pakistan. A reaper drone, which took off from the Middle East, struck the militant while he was in a car with a Daesh associate and is believed to have been killed. There are roughly 5,000 US troops at Kabul's airport, helping to evacuate American citizens, at-risk Afghans and other nationalities before Biden's Tuesday deadline.
