The statement came after the deadly attack on a luxury hotel in Kabul in which many were killed and dozens others were injured. The white house issued statement on Monday night.

Sarah Sanders added that the leaders of the terrorist outfit need to be banned from operating on Pakistani soil.

The Afghan Interior Ministry said on Sunday morning the operation to rescue the hostages has completed, with 126 hostages — of which 41 were foreigners — rescued.
