The Taliban, who now have control of Afghanistan, has said the U.S should have informed them before conducting the airstrike.

“It was a clear attack on Afghan territory – two people were killed, two women and a child were wounded in the attack,” a Taliban spokesperson said.

The Taliban said Kabul airport will soon be under complete Taliban control.
