According to initial data, the target was killed, the Pentagon reported on Saturday night. The statement does not state whether the target was directly involved in Thursday’s attack at the airport gates.

“The first indications are that we killed the target. We don’t know of any civilian casualties, “the US military said, according to Reuters.

According to the AP agency, the strike was carried out less than 48 hours after the suicide bombing, which was claimed by the Islamic State-Khorasan group.

The leadership of US forces in the Middle East, the Persian Gulf and North Africa (CENTCOM) said that they had struck a drone against a member of the US IS in the province of Nangarhar. Washington believes it was involved in planning attacks on the United States in Kabul.

One person was killed in the attack and there is no information on civilian casualties, army spokesman William Urban confirmed. According to the AP, the air attack is the fulfillment of the promise of the American president Joe Biden to the nation that the perpetrators of the attack on the airport will not be able to hide. Pentagon officials confirmed to reporters on Friday that they were ready for any retaliatory action the president ordered.
