rocket attack on Kabul city foiledThe Afghanistan national security forces thwarted a plot by the anti-government armed militant groups to carry out rocket attack on Kabul city.

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) said police forces discovered at least four rockets prepared by the militants to launch on Kabul city.

MoI further added that the rockets were discovered and defused after discovering it from Rishkhor hill.

The anti-government armed militant groups have not commented regarding the report so far.

The Afghan security forces thwarted a similar attack plot by the militant groups nearly two weeks by seizing a BM-1 Grad rocket from Qalacha area of the city.

This comes as the Taliban-led insurgency has been rampant since the group launched its summer offensive earlier this year and since then staged numerous attacks across the country including capital Kabul.

Scores of people were killed or wounded in a series of deadly attacks by the Taliban group in capital Kabul earlier this month.

Two back to back explosions rocked capital Kabul late on the same day which left at least 27 police recruits dead along with a NATO service member and 8 contracted civilians of the Resolute Support mission.
