Joe Biden has pledged to hunt down ISIS members who were involved in the two suicide bomb attacks near Kabul airport on Thursday evening. The US President vowed to make those involved “pay” for the attack which killed 12 US troops; 11 US Marines and one Navy personnel. It marked the first U.S. military casualties in Afghanistan since February 2020 and represented the deadliest incident for American troops in the country in a decade.
Speaking from the White House, Mr Biden said: “To those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone who wishes America harm, know this: We will not forgive, we will not forget.
“We will hunt you down and make you pay.”
