Afghanistan, Taliban on the run: Isis attack threats at Kabul airport
There is a “very specific threat” of a ISIS attack at Kabul airport. This was reported by a US defense official to CNN. According to the source, the militants of the Islamic State in Afghanistan intend to attack the crowds gathered around the airport in the hope of being evacuated and, from the information gathered, it appears that the terrorists would be able to carry out more than one attack.
Last night, in confirming his decision to complete the withdrawal of troops on August 31, the president of the United States, Joe Biden, he had stated that “every day we remain on the ground is another day in which we know that ISIS is trying to hit the airport and attack both the US and allied forces and innocent civilians”.
According to Cnn, “the concern grew after more than 100 detainees loyal to the ISIS branch in Afghanistan fled two prisons near Kabul as the Taliban advanced on the Afghan capital. “A counter-terrorism source in the region then told the US broadcaster that several hundred ISIS members may have fled the Bagram and Pul-e-Charki prisons, east of the Afghan capital. , just before the arrival of the Taliban, who have hostile relations with the terrorist organization.
