Explosions heard as drone strike takes out second suicide bomber in Afghanistan

With Biden’s Afghanistan evacuation coming to a sorry close, American troops and refugees are far from in the clear.

Thankfully, the latest attempt to kill Americans failed, due to swift and savage intervention from the U.S. military.

Fox News reports:

“The U.S. military conducted an airstrike against a vehicle carrying at least one suicide bomber who intended to target Kabul‘s international airport Sunday, a U.S. official confirmed.”

“The strike in a crowded neighborhood northwest of the airport set off “significant secondary explosions,” which indicated a “substantial amount of explosive material” inside the vehicle, Capt. Bill Urban, spokesman for U.S. Central Command, said in a statement. While the target was initially described as a vehicle-born improvised explosive device (IED), an official clarified that the explosives may have been worn by one or more bombers inside, rather than planted on the vehicle itself.”

“The U.S. military acted to intervene and prevent another event like the one that occurred Thursday when a suicide bomb killed 13 U.S. service members and 170 Afghan citizens.”

We can be very thankful that this attempt failed, but we’re not in the clear yet. The next few days will be critical.
