On Saturday, a blast occurred in the diplomatic quarter of Kabul, where foreign embassies and many government buildings are located. As a result of the blast, many buildings in the vicinity have been damaged, with windows blown out. According to media reports, at least 95 people were killed, while over 150 others were injured in the attack. Taliban terror group reportedly claimed responsibility for the blast.
Cruelty of the Taliban terror group will not prevail, the US president pointed out. "Now, all countries should take decisive action against the Taliban and the terrorist infrastructure that supports them," Trump urged.
Earlier, Trump has announced increase in military deployments in the country. In 2017, the US military doubled the amount of bombs dropped in Afghanistan over the previous two years, according to the new data released by the Pentagon.
