On 26 August 2021, two suicide bombings occurred near Abbey Gate at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. The attacks came hours after the United States State Department told Americans outside the airport to leave due to a terrorist threat.
At least 72 people have been killed in the attacks, including 12 U.S. servicemembers. More than 200 were injured. The attacks were carried out by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – Khorasan Province.
