Pentagon: Two ISIS-K targets killed during Friday strike

President Biden on Saturday said that he spoke with his national security team about the two ISIS-K targets who were killed during Friday night's airstrike.

What they're saying: "We discussed the strike that U.S. forces took last night against the terrorist group ISIS-K in Afghanistan," Biden said. "I said we would go after the group responsible for the attack on our troops and innocent civilians in Kabul, and we have."

  • "I can confirm, two high profile targets were killed and one was wounded …We will continue to have the ability to defend ourselves … as needed," Army Maj. Gen. William “Hank” Taylor said Saturday.
  • "The fact that two of these individuals are no longer walking on the face of the Earth, that’s a good thing," Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby added. "We believe that we hit valid targets — bad guys who can do bad things and can plan bad missions."
  • Kirby confirmed that the two targets were involved in the attack on the Kabul airport.
  • Biden on Thursday said he has directed the Pentagon to develop plans to "strike" ISIS-K "assets, leadership and facilities" in response to the Kabul airport bombing, which killed as many as 170 people, in addition to 13 U.S. service members.

State of play: Taylor explained that the two "high profile" targets were "planners and facilitators" for ISIS-K.

  • Kirby said it "absolutely" impacted ISIS-K because "they have lost some capability to plan and conduct missions."
  • The Pentagon will not be releasing the names of the targets.

Of note: Defense officials said the evacuation mission will finish by Aug. 31, "nothing has changed about the timeline," according to Kirby.

  • He added that U.S. forces have begun "retrograding" from the Kabul airport.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
