BREAKING: Rocket attack in Kabul as U.S. defense secretary, NATO chief visit

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) spokesman Najib Danish confirmed the incident and said the attack has not caused any casualties.

There are also reports that sporadic gun fire erupted briefly after the rockets landed close to the airport.

In the meantime, eyewitnesses are saying that three have landed close to the airport and the independent election commission compound.

No individual or group has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident.

This comes as the US Secretary of Defense and NATO Secretary General arrived in Kabul earlier today to meet with the Afghan officials and coalition forces.

Today’s incident takes place three days after a suicide bomber targeted a convoy of the foreign forces in the city.

At least five civilians were wounded after a suicide bomber targeted the vehicle of the foreign forces in the vicinity of the ۵th police district of the city.

The Taliban insurgents group had claimed responsibility behind the incident.
