Rocket blast near Kabul airport amid terror attack alert: Report
Kabul : A suspected rocket blast has been reported in Kabul hours after the US President Joe Biden issued a warning of another terror attack in the capital as the evacuation process entered into its final days.
More than 114,000 people have been able to get out their country via a US-led evacuation since August 15, when Taliban swept back into power.
On Thursday, things became even critical when suicide bombers from the local Islamic State group targeted the US troops and huge crowd of people entering the airport.
Over 100 people had lost their lives in the twin blast near Kabul airport. 13 US service personnel were also martyred in the incident.
On Saturday, US launched a drone attack on the mastermind of the jihadist attack. The Pentagon on Saturday said that retaliation drone strikes had killed two "high-level" IS jihadists in eastern Afghanistan, but Biden warned of more attacks from the group.
"The situation on the ground continues to be extremely dangerous, and the threat of terrorist attacks on the airport remains high," Biden said.
"Our commanders informed me that an attack is highly likely in the next 24-36 hours."
Late Sunday afternoon, a loud blast was heard coming from the north of the city which a security official in the toppled government said was a rocket hitting a house.
Further details were not immediately available.
