Afghanistan, Pentagon: “Threat continues in Kabul”

-

In Kabul, after the attack on the airport of the capital of Afghanistan, the “threat is continuous”. The commanders sent by the Pentagon to the field continue to “monitor the risks” and US forces remain on high alert for the “continuing threat” of terrorist attacks. This was reported by the deputy director for regional operations of the United General Staff, General William Taylor, providing an update to the press. On yesterday’s attack, which caused a massacre and also caused the death of a dozen US troops, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby added, “there will be an investigation”. The Pentagon does not believe there was a “second explosion” near the Baron Hotel, Taylor said. It was a “suicide attack”, he added, explaining that in the confusion of the attack, news of a second explosion would spread. Taylor also confirmed the killing of 13 US troops. The injured military personnel, he said, were transferred to the Ramstein base in Germany, where they are now receiving necessary treatment.
