Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden were also to attend the dignified transfer of the fallen troops while at Dover Air Force Base, a military ritual of receiving the remains of those killed in foreign combat.

The US president, 4th commander-in-chief who testified the return home of soldiers in coffins from Afghanistan, as he announced the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, said that the nearly 20-year war would not pass the responsibility on to a fifth.

According to US officials, an affiliate of the Islamic State extremist group known as ISIS-K was responsible for the Aug. 26 bombing, which President Biden threatened to hunt them down and make them pay for this.

US retaliation came shortly after President Biden ordered a drone attack on two suspected ISIS-K targets that were eliminated in the Afghan province of Nangahar.

On Sunday, US forces conducted new attacks on alleged extremists in a district of Kabul and also on multiple suicide bombers who were driving to Kabul airport.

After a 20-year invasion and military occupation by the United States and NATO, in a war that many have already branded as lost, the US troops will leave Afghanistan.
