In a statement contradictory to his decision to end the Afghanistan war, the US president claimed that the United States will maintain the fight against terrorism in Afghanistan and other countries.
‘To ISIS-K, we are not done with you yet,’ Biden said, vowing a ‘tough, unforgiving, targeted, precise strategy¨ for last Thursday´s attack that killed 13 US service members.
ISIS-K claimed responsibility for the blasts in the vicinity of the Kabul international airport, where about 200 individuals, including 13 US soldiers were killed.
In response, the Pentagon launched two attacks on the extremist group, killing 10 civilians on Sunday, including children under five.
President Biden vowed to continue to go after terrorism around the globe, saying Tuesday the United States will ‘go after terror where it is today, not where it was two decades ago.’
