Innocent lives were lost in an attack against the Kabul airport, an American-controlled facility, today, Thursday, August 26. It has been reported 13 U.S. Service members have been killed, along with at least 60 Afghans, after two loud blasts of suicide bombs were shot through crowds trying to enter the facility and followed by gunfire.

The Pentagon has reported, along with the fatalities, there are also several injured by an assault by gunmen from Islamic State’s regional affiliates. Corps General Frank McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command, told reporters the U.S. estimates that around 1,000 Americans remain in Afghanistan.
