Earlier tonight, American President Joe Biden urged citizens to leave the airport due to the threat of a terrorist attack in the coming hours. Three days ago, on Thursday, a suicide bomber used an explosive device at a checkpoint at the Kabul airport; on August 26, 2 explosions were made. The first thundered at the northern entrance to the airport, where there were many Afghan citizens who did not lose hope of leaving the country occupied by the Taliban. The media report the involvement of an IS suicide bomber in him. A little later, near the Baron Hotel, in the immediate vicinity of the airport, a car bomb was blown up. This was the place where British and American military personnel gathered.
