(AmericanProsperity.com) – According to an Associated Press’ Tuesday report, the Taliban killed ISIS-K, who was the intellectual author of the 2021 bombing attack at the Kabul airport, which left 170 Afghans and 13 US soldiers dead.
Citing US officials and the father of a US marine killed in the 2021 bombing attack, the Associated Press reported that the Islamic State leader was killed in the southern region of Afghanistan by the Taliban. The news agency said that the elimination of this terrorist took place in early April during a series of military operations conducted by the Taliban against the terrorist organization.
According to The New York Times, which also interviewed numerous senior US officials, the Taliban wasn’t aware of the person it killed during its military operation. However, US intelligence agencies managed to determine the leader’s death after different investigations.
The war between the Taliban and the offshoot of ISIS right after the Biden administration ordered the controversial US withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021. This situation represented one of the most humiliating episodes in US Foreign Policy, to the point where many political analysts compared it to the Fall of Saigon in 1975.
As reported by numerous media outlets, US officials have already started to share information about ISIS-K’s death with the families of the US service members who were killed in the bombing attack. This one took place outside the Kabul airport at the Abbey Gate, and it was perpetrated by an ISIS suicide bomber.
The situation took place at a moment where American forces were trying to evacuate refugees and American citizens as the Taliban swept to power all around the country and took control of the capital Kabul. This situation was reported by social media all over the world, with many pundits labeling it as one of the most dramatic moments of a historic low for the United States as a world superpower.
