An airstrike by the United States managed to stop a suicide bomber in a vehicle, who this Sunday wanted to attack the international airport of Kabul, Afghanistan.
According to The Associated Press, the Taliban confirmed the explosion, but no details.
A rocket was also reported to hit a neighborhood northwest of the airport, killing a child.
“The two attacks appeared to be separate incidents,” the agency says.
The attack comes as the United States continues with its eviction attempts and a joint stance of dozens of nations on the actions in Afghanistan.
“We are all committed to ensuring that our citizens, nationals and residents, employees, Afghans who have worked with us and those who are at risk can continue to travel freely to destinations outside Afghanistan ”, indicates the message distributed by the Biden Administration.
It is added that there are “guarantees from the Taliban” that all foreign nationals and any Afghan with travel authorization to more than 50 countries will be able to go safely and in an orderly manner to the points of departure.
“We will continue to issue travel documentation to designated Afghans, and we have the clear expectation and commitment of the Taliban that they can travel to our respective countries,” it said. “We take note of the public statements by the Taliban confirming this understanding.”
