U.S. airstrike targets Islamic State member after Kabul airport attack

The United States launched a drone strike targeting members of the Islamic State in Afghanistan on Saturday local time in response to Thursday's Kabul airport attack, the Pentagon said.

Driving the news: The United States targeted and killed an ISIS-K member in Nangahar who U.S. Central Command said was involved in arranging Thursday's attack, AP reported.

  • Navy Capt. William Urban told AP that there were no other known casualties.
  • U.S. citizens at the Kabul airport's Abbey Gate, East Gate, North Gate or New Ministry of Interior Gate should "leave immediately" due to security threats, the State Department said in an update Friday.
  • The airport was the target of terror attacks this week, leaving at least 13 U.S. service members dead and more than 70 Afghans. The New Ministry of Interior Gate is a new addition to the list advising urgent departures.
