Attack on U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan ‘highly likely in the next 24-36 hours’: Biden

DM

United States President Joe Biden says military commanders have informed him that an attack on soldiers still stationed in Afghanistan is “highly likely” within the next 24 to 36 hours. The news comes as America’s military begins its final pullout, following a deadly U.S. airstrike aimed at terrorist group ISIS-K that reportedly struck Afghanistan on Friday night. “I directed them to take every possible measure to prioritize force protection, and ensured that they have all the authorities, resources and plans to protect our men and women on the ground,” Biden said in a White House statement posted online Saturday. “They assured me that they did, and that they could take these measures while completing the mission and safely retrograding our personnel.”
