ISIS claim responsibility for Kabul attacks that have killed at least 72 – including 13 US soldiers – and name suicide bomber who blew himself up checkpoint manned by US Marines
The Daily Mail says: ISIS have claimed responsibility for the suicide bomb attacks on Kabul airport that killed 13 US solders and 60 Afghan civilians.
The two explosions, one of which hit Kabul airport’s Abbey Gate, the other the Baron Hotel, had been blamed on ISIS-K, a regional affiliate of the so-called Islamic State that operates in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The ISIS-K offshoot is a sworn enemy of the Taliban, who have been handed control of Afghanistan by Joe Biden’s withdrawal of US troops.
ISIS posted a statement claiming responsibility for the attack from their Telegram account on Thursday following the attacks earlier today.
Abdul Rehman Al-Loghri of ISIS-K was the suicide bomber responsible for the blast at Abbey Gate, according to ISIS.
Founded in 2015, ISIS-K followers aim to establish an Islamic caliphate across Khorasan (hence the initial ‘K’) – a historic region covering Pakistan and Afghanistan along with parts of Central Asia.
