The Afghan capital, Kabul, was hit by another rocket attack on Monday morning. Five rockets were fired near Kabul airport. However, the air defense system prevented the attacks, US officials said. Smoke billowed from the area due to the rocket attack. The attack took place around 6.40 am.
The US military has a few hours left to withdraw from Afghanistan. On the other hand, the collapse of the Taliban regime has forced many Afghans to flee the country. A few days ago, there was a suicide attack on Kabul airport. More than 100 people, including 13 American soldiers, were killed in the attack. The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a police station.
It was not immediately clear who carried out the rocket attack on Monday morning. No organization has claimed responsibility for the attack. The rocket attack was repulsed by an air defense system in the vicinity of Kabul airport, a U.S. official said. No casualties were reported in the attack.
Meanwhile, Taliban leaders have said that a comprehensive caretaker government will be formed in Afghanistan, according to media reports in Pakistan. ‘We will soon form a caretaker government. That includes all the elements, “said a member of the Taliban’s advisory committee.
