From Fox News Channel’s Lucas Tomlinson:
The U.S. drone hit a vehicle carrying the ISIS-K leader who was believed to be “carrying out future attacks,” a U.S. official briefed on the strike tells Fox News.
It’s not clear if the planner was involved in the suicide attack at Kabul airport Thursday, which killed 13 U.S. service members and wounded 20 others.
The ISIS-K planner was also traveling with an “associate,” Fox News understands.
The drone strike took place a few hours ago near the border with Pakistan, the official said.
