Based on reports from officials at the Afghanistan’s Ministry of Public Health that 79 Afghans were killed from blast, and over 200 Afghan citizens have been wounded and more than 170 people killed from attacks.
The attacks are believed to be carried out by ISIS-K (who claimed responsibility), an Islamic State Affiliate and a terrorist group who are enemies of the Taliban. The two militant groups have a long history of engaging in attacks on each other.
NPR reported that Press Secretary Jen Psaki said, in a statement on a briefing President Biden received, “The next few days of this mission will be the most dangerous period to date”.
Additional security and protections are being put into place in the event of another attack, which the U.S. feels is likely.
Despite threats, the U.S. will continue its evacuation mission as the race continues to get people out ahead of the August 31st deadline. Around 105,000 have been airlifted abroad in the last 12 days.
