During an address to the nation Thursday evening, President Biden vowed to “hunt down” the terrorists behind the bombings at the Kabul airport and said the U.S. military will continue to evacuate American citizens and allies despite the disruption.

Biden spoke hours after two bombs were detonated outside the Hamid Karzai Airport in Kabul, killing at least twelve U.S. Marines and at least 60 Afghans. One suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device at the airport’s central Abbey gate, while a second bomber detonated his device outside the Baron Hotel, near the airport’s perimeter.

ISIS-K, an Iranian offshoot of the Islamic State, claimed responsibility for the attacks Thursday afternoon, confirming the Pentagon’s assessment.

“We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay,” Biden said, addressing the terrorists.

“With regard to finding and tracking down the ISIS leaders who ordered this, we have some reason to believe we know who they are — not certain — and we will find ways of our choosing, without large military operations, to get them. Wherever they are,” he added.
