Two suicide bombers and gunmen attacked crowds of Afghans flocking to Kabul’s airport Thursday, transforming a scene of desperation into one of horror in the waning days of an airlift for those fleeing the Taliban takeover.

After twin bomb attacks, at least 80 people have been killed and 140 injured in explosions at Kabul airport, senior health official tells BBC

At least 12 U.S. service members were among the dead, including 11 Marines and one Navy medic, & 15 injured according to two U.S. officials. Officials warned the toll could grow.

I'm following with grave concern the situation at Kabul’s airport & strongly condemn today’s horrific terrorist attack.

The incident underscores the volatility of Afghanistan, but also strengthens our resolve as we continue to deliver urgent assistance to the Afghan people.

UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres


"There have been several terrorist attacks outside #Kabul airport today. I strongly condemn those heinous attacks. My thoughts are with the victims & their loved ones, including those of US servicemen." @HeikoMaas

"The last #Bundeswehr aircraft flew from #Kabul to #Tashkent tonight. On board were Bundeswehr soldiers & the core team of our Embassy. I am deeply gracious for their tremendous efforts. Over the course of the last days we have evacuated over 5300 people into safety." @HeikoMaas

"Today marks the end of the military evacuation. But our efforts continue until everyone we bear responsibility for, is safe. For this purpose, we are in close dialog with our partners. I will travel myself on Sunday to Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Qatar & Turkey"@HeikoMaas

German Foreign Office

Governor Abbott Statement On U.S. Military Members Killed In Kabul Airport Attack

"What we're witnessing in Kabul right now is an absolute tragedy. Brave U.S. Marines and soldiers sacrificed everything to protect innocent lives and defend our nation's principles of
freedom and liberty for all. Their families are left grieving the heartbreaking loss of a loved one.

Please join Cecilia and me in praying for these Marines and soldiers who fought through to the end, for their loved ones, and for all U.S. military members who continue to serve courageously and honorably for our country around the world."

Texas Governor, Greg Abott

These so called Terrorists are indeed COWARDS! Why can't they engage the U.S military in a real fight? So, they had to wait for their masters to leave before pouncing on innocent, harmless preys.

Bloody COWARDS!!! Just like their colleagues in Nigeria... angry

embarassed

Ease lam
Religion of pieces

Street children always bear grudges, behaves radical and waring e.g of Ishmael the father of Islam, he grew up from the street with his mother after Sarah (Abraham wife) pushed him and his mother away and deny him his inheritance and birth place in the household of Abraham his father. Ishmael mother who was an orphan took him to the street survived from place to places, indulged in ill behavior and above all his mother sowed a seed of discord between him and Isaac his half brother and that is where the hatred between Islam and Christianity began.
I will open a thread on this to explain further
With facts.
Joe Biden have made a great mistake to withdrew the US soldiers fro Afghanistan

This is what some people want to turn Nigeria into... These people will still go to another developed country and cause atrocities even though they were accepted with open hands.

And another war has officially started, why didn't the Taliban wait till their 31st August deadline before they made true their stupid threat? If not that they just want to look for trouble and cause unnecessary tensions, very idiotic Islamic jihadist.

Modified; Whether Isis-k or Taliban, they are same idiotic Islamic Jihadists, no difference.

Muslims are killing muslims
The suicide bombings were carried out by isis-k, another Islamic terrorist group that opposes taliban movement.
Afghanistan is in serious mess.

The taliban has taken over. The US and other foreign forces have been given a deadline. Why the suicide bombs? I don't know the politics involved, but can someone put me through.
