A Timeline of the Terrorist Bombings in Afghanistan
August 26, 2021
It's believed an off-shoot of the terror group ISIS, called ISIS-K, is responsible for the explosions Thursday in Afghanistan that, according to early reports, led to multiple deaths, including 12 U.S. service members. On Tuesday evening, President Joe Biden spelled out the danger in televised remarks. Around 7 p.m., American citizens in the crush at Kabul airport were told to “leave immediately,” and there were reports of an imminent attack. The blast was near an airport gate by the Baron Hotel.
