Rocket attack against Kabul airport fails, intercepted by U.S. missile defense system

The final countdown to evacuate the remaining U.S. citizens and Afghan allies from Afghanistan is on, as President Joe Biden announced last week that he’ll stick to the Aug. 31 deadline to make it happen.

However, as the final hours approach, a fresh round of attacks on Hamid Karzai International Airport made headlines on Monday morning. As Fox News reported, unknown actors launched a rocket attack on the airport in Kabul, only to be intercepted by the U.S. military’s C-RAM missile defense system.

While no terrorist groups in the region have claimed responsibility for the rocket attacks, which were reportedly launched out of the back of a truck, it’s not a stretch to presume that it was likely led by ISIS-K or another terrorist faction wanting to disrupt the final hours of the U.S. pullout.

In addition, the attack failed to stop what Fox News described as a “steady stream” of U.S. C-17 aircraft taking off with loads of evacuees on Monday morning.

The attack came just hours after a U.S. drone strike was carried out against a vehicle that was said to have contained explosives and was en route to the airport to detonate. According to The New York Times, Afghans on the ground reported that the U.S. strike resulted in multiple civilian casualties, including the death of at least one child, and perhaps more.

U.S. officials didn’t elaborate but noted that they’re investigating the reports of civilian deaths.

“We are aware of reports of civilian casualties following our strike on a vehicle in Kabul today,” Bill Urban, the CentCom spokesman said. “We are still assessing the results of this strike.”

Most experts and government officials expect the remaining 24 hours in Kabul to be tense, as it’s likely that additional attacks will be launched against U.S. personnel and assets as a parting shot on their way out.

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) GOOD LUCK

War is wicked, but this pathetic departure was so miscalculated and against all military processes. It shows incompetence, loss of lives and loss of valuable equipment due to this mismanagement. We Americans demand our US military equipment and technology to be returned, or bombed. Also, the campaigns funds of the politicians that caused this fiasco, should pay for the lost equipment and the extra cost to ship military out, deploy and ship them out. Taxpayers should not pay for humongous errors as this. this is outrageous and a total abuse of our tax dollars.

Bejing Biden has given the world’s terrorists a completely stocked toolbox with which to launch continuous attacks against the United States. And you can count on the fact that they will not pass on the opportunity to do so. Many lives will be lost and it will all be thanks to a demented old poser.

It was good to hear that there were se real C-17s taking off. Hope they were able to get the Americans out.
I guess the attacks by terrorists is no surprise. Happy to hear there were no casualties at the airport.
God be with all.

There was always a better way to get our Americans and Afghan Allies out than how this communist democrat cult party chose to! What a clown show they have been, giving up billions in arms and a secure air base! This communist democrat cult regime is a DISGRACE TO OUR COUNTRY AND NEEDS TO LEAVE!

Biden left all the service dogs at the airport in cages, and nobody took them. They will all be dead now.
