Kabul … News Time

The attacks on US September 11, 2001, were completed 18 years after the rocket was fired at the US Embassy in Afghanistan. However, an hour after the rocket attack, officials said no casualties were reported as a result of the attack, while officials also called the US embassy complex cleared. US news agency Associated Press reports that clouds of smoke were seen rising from the embassy in the middle of the Afghan capital last night. After that the siren started ringing and employees heard loudspeaker announce that a rocket had exploded in the compound.

On the other hand, the NATO mission near the US Embassy also confirmed that no personnel were injured in the attack. It is thought that this is the first major strike in Kabul since the close negotiations between the Taliban and the Trump government to end the 18-year-long US-led war in Afghanistan has come to a close. Earlier last week, the Taliban bombed 2 car bombs in Kabul, killing several civilians, including 2 NATO personnel. US President Donald Trump called the death of an American soldier in the attack a deadly US-Taliban negotiation, after that, September 11, which is considered a sensitive day in Afghanistan, took place in Kabul.

Remember that after the September 11, 2001, attack on the Twin Towers in New York City, the US-led war began in Afghanistan. As a result, the Taliban regime, which sheltered al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, was called the mastermind of the attacks. During this 18-year war, the number of US troops in Afghanistan had reached one million however, after the assassination of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan in 2011, that number has dropped dramatically. As a result, there are now 14,000 US troops in Afghanistan, and US President Donald Trump has spent billions of dollars calling his presence in Afghanistan ridiculous.
