ISIS Attack Will Not Deter Troops From Mission To Get Americans Out Of Afghanistan, Says Pentagon

An ISIS attack on the Kabul airport won’t stop U.S. officials from evacuating Americans from Afghanistan, U.S. Central Command Gen. Kenneth McKenzie said in a press conference Thursday.

U.S. troops will continue processing and evacuating American citizens and Afghan allies at the Kabul international airport in Afghanistan through Aug. 31, McKenzie said. An estimated 1,000 American citizens are still in the country.

“We’re continuing to execute the mission. Our mission is to evacuate US citizens, third-country nationals, special immigrant Visa holders, U.S. embassy staff, and Afghans at risk. Despite this attack, we are continuing the mission,” McKenzie said. “To do anything less — especially now — would dishonor the purpose and sacrifice these men and women have rendered our country and the people of Afghanistan.”

ISIS claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing and gun attack at the Kabul airport that killed at least 13 U.S. troops and injured several others.


U.S. forces are preparing for increased attacks as evacuations continue.

“The plan is designed to operate under stress and under attack,” McKenzie said. “And we will coordinate to make sure it’s safe for American citizens to come to the airfield. If it’s not, we’ll tell them to hold and work other ways to get them to the airport.”

“We’ll continue to flow them out until the end of the month,” McKenzie added. “ISIS will not deter us from accomplishing that mission.”

U.S. officials warned of a credible threat targeting the airport Wednesday night and instructed people to clear the area.
