A US airstrike in a Kabul neighborhood took out an ISIS-K vehicle on its way to the airport. The US stated there were no civilian casualties, however are working to assess the possibility since it occurred in a neighborhood. The explosion was such that officials stated it must have contained a substantial amount of explosives. CENTCOM stated that the vehicle contained several suicide bombers. UPDATE: This was not an ISIS-K vehicle, but a civilian one with children.
“U.S. military forces conducted a self-defense unmanned over-the-horizon airstrike today on a vehicle in Kabul, eliminating an imminent ISIS-K threat to Hamad Karzai International airport,” Capt. Bill Urban, spokesman for U.S. Central Command, told Fox News. “We are confident we successfully hit the target.”
Urban added that the military is assessing the possibility of civilian casualties, though there is no indication at the time. A senior defense official also told Fox News that the vehicle carried “multiple” suicide bombers.
Since the ISIS-K vehicle was traveling through a neighborhood, officials are currently attempting to ascertain whether there were any civilian casualties. One report from an Afghan police chief mentioned a child was killed, but that report is unconfirmed. The size of the explosion and location in a neighborhood may indicate others killed in the blast.

US military is assessing whether there were civilian casualties after airstrike which took place in Kabul neighborhood. No indications at this time, BUT that could change. There were secondary explosions due to large amount of explosives in vehicle. https://t.co/Lpbytr2s9l

An Afghan outlet originally thought the explosion was from ISIS or the Taliban, but quickly changed it to an American airstrike on an ISIS-K vehicle. They stated that 6 people were killed, including 2 children.
