The Afghan security officials confirmed that Taliban militants fired five rockets at Bagram Airfield earlier today which caused no casualties.

Tariq Arian, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior, said the Taliban militants had placed the rocket launcher in the trunk of a car.

He said the militants fired the rockets at around 5:40 am which caused no casualties.

The Taliban group has not commented regarding the incident so far.
