Child killed, 3 injured in rocket attack in Kabul

29/08/2021 at 8:12 PM

Kabul, Aug 29: A child was killed and three people have been injured in a massive blast in Afghanistan’s Kabul on Sunday, according to the local media.

The suspected rocket fire comes as the United States winds down a historic airlift that saw tens of thousands evacuated from Kabul’s international airport, the scene of much of the chaos that engulfed the Afghan capital since the Taliban took over two weeks ago.

After a suicide attack on Thursday claimed by the Islamic State in Khorasan Province, ISKP (ISIS-K), an ISIL affiliate, that killed at least 175 people, the Taliban increased its security around the airfield as the United Kingdom ended its evacuation flights on Saturday.

Earlier today, a massive explosion was heard near Kabul airport. This blast occurred merely two days after twin blasts rocked Kabul, which killed nearly 200 people, including 13 US servicemen.
