Kabul drone strike kills 9 of family, Taliban say attack arbitrary, U.S. should've reported threat to us

The US Central Command said it was investigating reports of civilian casualties from the drone strike which, it said, targeted a ISIS-K bomber.

At least 9 members of a family, including children, were killed in a US airstrike in Kabul on Sunday morning, according to Afghan news agency TOLOnews.

A Taliban spokesperson announced the toll as seven, and condemned the United States for failing to inform the Taliban before ordering the strike.

The US Central Command said it was investigating reports of civilian casualties from the drone strike which, it said, targeted a ISIS-K bomber.

US anti-missile defences intercepted as many as five rockets that were fired at Kabul’s airport early on Monday, a US official said, as it rushed to complete its withdrawal from Afghanistan to end its longest war.
