BREAKING: 5 Rockets Launched at Kabul Airport the Day After US Drone Strike, US Defense Intercepts


Rockets are being launched at the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul.

Even after 13 U.S. troops were killed by a suicide bomber and troops were deployed back into Afghanistan, the airport remains under attack.

The U.S. has intercepted as many as five rockets on Monday.

Joe Biden has been briefed on the attempted attack by National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and Chief of Staff Ron Klain.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said, “The President was informed that operations continue uninterrupted at HKIA, and has reconfirmed his order that commanders redouble their efforts to prioritize doing whatever is necessary to protect our forces on the ground.”

There are no initial reports detailing any U.S. casualties via Daily Caller:

The rocket attack comes one day after the U.S. drone struck an explosive-filled vehicle in route to Kabul’s airport and four days after an ISIS-K suicide bomber killed 13 American troops and some 170 Afghan nationals. It also happened one day before the American military is scheduled to fully withdraw from Afghanistan after nearly 20 years of war.

The U.S. on Saturday again warned of a “specific, credible threat” near the airport, urging Americans remaining to evacuate the premises as soon as possible. Biden also said that day another attack in the capital was “highly likely.”

A U.S. official told the Post that our military leaders had a meeting and reached an agreement with the Taliban.

This meeting occurred after Afghanistan’s president Ashraf Ghani fled the country and the city began to collapse as gangs were reported to be taking over.

With the decision of whether to accept control over Kabul or allow the Taliban to do so, the U.S. opted for the latter, Fox News reports.

Taliban political leader Abdul Ghani Baradar reportedly said, “We have two options to deal with it. You [the United States military] take responsibility for securing Kabul or you have to allow us to do it.”

This decision by the Biden administration led to the deaths of 13 U.S. troops at the airport in Kabul.
