Kabul police chief Gen. Abdul Rahman Rahimi said the rockets were seized and defused from Bagrami and Mosahi districts of Kabul before the anti-government armed militant use them for terrorist attacks.
The anti-government armed militant groups including the Taliban insurgents have not commented regarding the report so far.
No further details were given regarding the exact timing of the operation that led to the failure of the attack plot but the Taliban-led insurgency has been rampant during the recent months with the militants of the group staging deadly attacks across the country, including capital Kabul.
In the latest attempt to disrupt the security of the capital, a suicide bomber attempted to enter a government compound near the Presidential Palace but his explosives went off prematurely leaving only himself dead.
The Taliban militants carried out a deadly attack on the Ministry of Defense personnel late last month, leaving at least 15 dead and 31 others wounded.
According to defense officials, an Army Sergeants, 3 servicemembers, 1 civilian worker, 1 civil engineer, serving with the Ministry of Defense were martyred along with 4 civilians in the attack.
