As many as 5 rockets were fired on Kabul airport, says US official

As many as five rockets were fired at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul early Monday morning.

A US official, cited by the media, said there are no casualties among American personnel. However, at least one child was killed in the attack, local police said.

The US military engaged its C-RAM missile defense system, but, according to ABC News, it is still unclear whether all of the rockets were successfully intercepted.

White House Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement that US President Joe Biden has been briefed on the rocket attack at International Airport in Kabul and was informed that operations at the airfield continued uninterrupted, 

According to local media report, the rockets were fired from a car in Kabul’s Khair Khana area toward the airport and hit several parts of the city.

The rocket attack comes after US Centcom said that a drone strike was carried out on Sunday on a vehicle in Kabul, eliminating a Daesh*-K threat to the airport.
