The U.S. has struck back against ISIS-K, which claimed responsibility for Thursday’s attack at the Kabul airport that left dozens dead, including 13 U.S. troops. Two officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Friday that 169 Afghans had died, but a final count might take more time. The retaliatory strike came as the massive evacuation effort in Afghanistan continues.

The Pentagon has announced a drone strike against the group that bombed the Kabul airport, ISIS-K. A spokesman for U.S. Central Command says the attack in Nangahar Province of Afghanistan is believed to have killed the target, who was not named in the statement. The spokesman said there were no known civilian casualties.

President Biden had said the U.S. would strike back after Thursday’s bombing, saying “We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay.”
