Rockets fired at Kabul airport
"The rockets were likely fired from a position in Deh Sabz district," said Col. Mohammad Zahir, the crime branch chief of 201st Asmayee zone police.
He told Pajhwok Afghan News the strike that happened at around 1:30am caused no damage. With an investigation into the incident underway, it is not yet clear where the rockets fell.
A Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said the militants slammed two rockets at the airport. He claimed several security officials were killed and wounded.
A day earlier, the Ministry of Defence announced cancellation of the military parade for the 19th anniversary of Mujahidin's victory against the Soviet Union. The parade was cancelled for security reasons and to ward off a possible threat to civilians.
