Rockets fire towards Kabul airport

Kabul, Aug 30 (Prensa Latina) Several rockets on Monday have been fired at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, which hit houses although there are no reports so far of injuries or fatalities.

The rockets were fired from a car in northern Kabul’s Khair Khana area toward the airport, Tolo News reported.

United States National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain confirmed the rocket attack and added that evacuation operations at the airport were not interrupted.

The drone attack was the second by US forces in Afghanistan since a member of the Islamic State in Khorasan province, or ISIS-K, detonated his explosives at the crowded Kabul airport on Thursday, killing about 200 people.

The United States, which invaded Afghanistan after the September 2001 attacks, must withdraw all its troops on Tuesday, August 31, as part of a deal with the Taliban movement.

The Talibans retook the Central Asian country after two decades of the United States and NATO military occupation, which invaded Afghanistan in a supposed crusade against terrorism, in which 250,000 civilians were killed and 11 million people sought refuge outside the country.
