12 U.S. service members were killed in today’s suicide attack at Kabul airport. 15 others are being treated for wounds. Two explosions outside the Kabul airport injured at least three U.S. Marines and others, as the U.S. attempts to continue its evacuations out of Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. The terrorist group ISIS-K is suspected to be responsible for the attacks. One of the explosions occurred outside the Baron Hotel. The 160-room hotel stands less than a mile from the airport, near Camp Sullivan. The hotel has served as a processing center for Afghan people hoping to flee the country as the Taliban take control. It served as a gathering point for American citizens in the past for rescue and evacuation. Up to 1,500 Americans may still be in the country. The attack may have attempted to target a large number of American citizens. God is removing His protection of America everywhere.
