Witnesses and security officials say several rockets were fired at Kabul's airport on Monday, less than 48 hours before the US is set to complete its army departure from Afghanistan.Before the morning rush hour began, AFP staff heard the sound of rockets exploding over the capital.
The missiles were fired from a car in north Kabul, according to a security official who worked in the administration deposed by the Taliban two weeks ago.Local residents heard the airport's missile defence system, and shrapnel was reported raining onto the street, indicating at least one rocket had been intercepted.In the north, where the Hamid Karzai International Airport is located, smoke could be seen rising above buildings.
A vehicle was also on fire after being presumably damaged by retaliatory fire, according to social media posts that could not be verified right away.A Taliban spokesperson stated on Sunday that a US drone strike in Kabul targeting a suspected suicide bomber resulted in civilian casualties, and he blamed the US for neglecting to notify the Taliban before ordering the strike.
