In Afghanistan, on behalf of the US diplomatic mission, warned Americans about the growing likelihood of ISIS attacks on Kabul airport
Afghan sources indicate that representatives of the American diplomatic mission evacuated from Afghanistan have spread a message to their fellow citizens in Kabul. It is stated that they keep in touch with the embassy and not become part of the crowd in the area of the Kabul airport.
The report says that this is fraught with the likelihood of an attack by terrorists. At the same time, attention is drawn to the fact that we are not talking about the Taliban terrorist group (* banned in the Russian Federation).
In messages on behalf of the American diplomatic mission in Kabul, it is stated that, according to American intelligence, the danger comes from ISIS fighters * who allegedly were able to penetrate from the north of the country into the area of the Afghan capital. It is reported that ISIS * are preparing a terrorist act, in which American citizens who are not evacuated at the moment, who are located along the perimeter of the Kabul airport, may also suffer.
Earlier, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that, according to the US Department of State, there are about 1,5 thousand American citizens in Afghanistan (in addition to the military).
Message on behalf of the US diplomatic mission:
Meanwhile, information emerged that American accounts could be hacked in order to spread misinformation. At the moment, the State Department does not comment on reports that US intelligence has identified an increase in the threat from ISIS * in the area of the Kabul airport. Although earlier in the Biden administration they stated that there is such a threat against American citizens in Afghanistan.
If this is indeed disinformation, then it may well be beneficial to the Taliban *, who, in the event of an aggravation of the situation in Kabul, may shift the blame onto another terrorist group.
