Twelve U.S. service members are dead and 15 more are wounded after at least two bombings in Afghanistan’s capital of Kabul. Of the servicemembers that were killed 11 were Marines and one was a Navy medic. The Pentagon says two suicide bombers, believed to be ISIS fighters, detonated their explosives. One at the Abbey Gate right outside the airport and another outside the nearby Baron Hotel. A number of Afghans were also killed. President Biden spoke about the bombings earlier this afternoon and had a message for those who carried out the attacks saying, “know this. We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down.” Biden called those who died and were wounded, “heros.” ISIS-K has claimed responsibility for the attack. Biden says he has directed the Pentagon to develop plans to attack ISIS-K “assets, leadership and facilities” in response to the bombings. Officials say the evacuations out of Kabul will continue and the U.S. will go after those responsible for the attack. They also warn the threat of more attacks is still very real and very imminent. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki says flags will fly at half staff to honor those who died in Thursday’s attacks. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has also ordered flags be flown at half-staff until Monday evening.
