The gunman believed to have been responsible for the deadly 2021 attack on Kabul airport has been killed by the Taliban, US officials said. He was a leader of the Islamic State terrorist group.
The August 2021 attack killed 170 civilians and 13 US troops as people tried to flee Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.
According to the BBC, the ISIS leader died weeks ago, but it took some time to confirm his death.
His name has not been released.
The August 2021 withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan marked the end of America’s longest war.
It led to the collapse of the Afghan government and military, which the US government had supported for two decades. It also led to the return of the Taliban to power, and the Biden administration was heavily criticized. But Biden blamed former President Donald Trump for the withdrawal of US troops following a 2020 accord with the Taliban in Doha to end the war.
