Taliban: US airstrike hits suicide bomber seeking to target Kabul airport – The Times of Israel

KABUL, Afghanistan — A Taliban spokesman says a US military airstrike has targeted a suicide bomber in a vehicle who wanted to attack the Kabul international airport amid the American evacuation there.
Zabihullah Mujahid says in a message to journalists that the strike happened today.
US military officials can’t be immediately reached for comment.
The incident happened as police say a rocket struck a neighborhood just northwest of Kabul’s international airport, killing a child, as the US evacuation there winds down following the Taliban’s lightning takeover of the country.
The two strikes initially appear to be separate incidents, though information on both remain scarce.
As The Times of Israel’s environment reporter, I try to convey the facts and science behind climate change and environmental degradation, to explain – and critique – the official policies affecting our future, and to describe Israeli technologies that can form part of the solution.
I am passionate about the natural world and disheartened by the dismal lack of awareness to environmental issues shown by most of the public and politicians in Israel.
I’m proud to be doing my part to keep Times of Israel readers properly informed about this vital subject – which can and does effect policy change.
