“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.

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.
