Marine Corps General Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. announces that the final American troops have left Afghanistan, concluding U.S. involvement in the Afghanistan war. U.S. President Joe Biden also confirms the end of the war in a statement.
A U.S. airstrike targets a vehicle driven by an aid worker for U.S. based Nutrition and Education International, who was bringing home water for his family. At least 10 people are killed during the strike, including seven children. Some of those killed had previously worked for international organisations and held visas allowing them entry to the United States. There are reports of other civilians being killed too. The majority of the casualties were residents of the area.
The U.S. Embassy in Kabul warns Americans to leave the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul due to a "specific, credible threat". Additionally, U.S. president Joe Biden issues a warning of another attack on the airport in the next "24–36 hours".
A suicide bomber blows himself up at an entrance of the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, killing at least 90 Afghan civilians and 13 American servicemembers. More than 150 others are wounded. ISIL-KP, who have threatened the airport in recent days, have claimed responsibility for the attack.
U.S. President Joe Biden, in an address to the nation, says that the evacuation of American citizens will continue despite the terrorist attacks. He also vows that the U.S. will avenge the deaths of the 13 service members killed in the attacks by "hunting down" those responsible and "making them pay".
