At least three civilians have been killed as a result of early morning attacks in the Afghan capital of Kabul on Saturday. Initial incident reports claim 11 more were wounded, however the spokesman for the Ministry of Interior, Tariq Arian, stated that five bodies and an additional 21 injured were taken to the hospital following the attack.
“This morning, the terrorists fired 14 rockets on the city of Kabul,” the interior ministry spokesman said. The rockets had been mounted in a truck and then set off. Mr. Arian added that “Unfortunately the rockets hit residential areas. Until now, three of our countrymen were martyred and 11 others were wounded.”
He also stated that two small “sticky bomb” explosions had damaged a police car, killing one policeman and wounding three others.
The attack precedes a scheduled visit between US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo and negotiators representing the Taliban regime and the Afghan government in Doha.
