The Afghan forces stopped rocket barrage on eastern Kunar province by confiscating a BM-12 rocket launcher during a special military operation.

The 201st Silab Corps in a statement said the Special Forces of the National Directorate of Security, the Afghan Intelligence, seized the rocket launcher during a special raid in Sarkano district.

The statement further added the enemies were looking to carry out missile attacks on certain parts of Kunar using the BM-12 rocket launcher.

The anti-government armed militants including Taliban have not commented in this regard so far.

Kunar is among the relatively volatile provinces in East of Afghanistan where the anti-government armed militants including Taliban, Al-Qaeda affiliates and ISIS Khurasan terrorists have active presence in some of its restive districts.
