IEA forces killed Kabul airport attack ‘mastermind’, U.S. says

KABUL: The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan security forces have killed a mastermind of the Islamic State locally known as Daesh who launched a deadly attack at the Kabul International Airport, killing at least 13 U.S. security personnel and scores of civilians in 2021, Reuters cited U.S. officials as saying Tuesday. The suicide bombing happened during the United States’ chaotic evacuation from the coun- try on August 26, 2021, as U.S. troops were trying to help Americans and Afghans flee after the takeover of Afghanistan by the Islamic Emirate, following the defeat of the American forces after 20 years of war in Afghanistan. “He was a key ISIS-K (Daesh) official directly involved in plotting operations like Abbey Gate, and now is no longer able to plot or conduct attacks,” White House spokesperson John Kirby said in a statement, referring to the Abbey Gate entrance to the Kabul airport where the blast occurred. He did not name the official. The Daesh leader, whose identity has not yet been released, was killed in southern Afghanistan in early April as the IEA forces conducted a series of operations against the Daesh group, the Associated Press reported citing one of the officials.
