Daesh Claims Rocket Attack on US Airbase, No Casualties

At least five rockets fired were fired at Bagram airbase in Parwan province early on Thursday morning, said Afghanistan's Ministry of Interior. A vehicle was destroyed but there were no casualties, said the ministry.

Resolute Support Mission tweeted a confirmation: "Five rockets were fired at Bagram airfield early this morning. There were no casualties or injuries. Our ANDSF partners are investigating the incident."

Daesh claimed the rocket attack, according to Reuters, which cited an online message from the group.

The Taliban has rejected involvement in today's rocket attack at Bagram airbase in northern Parwan province.

The attack on the US airbase is significant because of the terms of the US-Taliban peace deal signed on February 29, which states that the Taliban will not attack US bases, even as fighting continues between US-backed Afghan government forces and the Taliban.
