Rockets Land Near Presidential Palace During Eid Prayers

Three rockets landed near the Presidential Palace on Tuesday morning during Eid prayers where President Ashraf Ghani and other politicians and officials had attended.

The rockets landed when they just started the Eid prayers.

Sources confirmed that the rockets were fired from the Parwan-e-Se area in Kabul’s District 18 in the north of the city.

The rockets landed in Bagh-e-Ali Mardan and Chaman-e-Hozori areas in Kabul’s District 1 and Manabe Bashari area in Kabul’s District 2 – all near the Presidential Palace, officials said.

But sources from the government said that one rocket landed at the Presidential Palace's compound in which one person was wounded.

"When I saw the car that rockets were fired one after another, I was scared. No one was there in the car," said Tabish, a Kabul resident.

"By rockets, you only bring the message of death. Our message is the message of life," President Ghani said in a speech after the incident.

The rockets were fired from a corolla vehicle that was burnt after the incident.

"People were too afraid. It had a loud sound. There were four blasts sound," said Mujib, a Kabul resident.

"Six rockets were fired from this car," said Mohammad Nasim, a Kabul resident who said that people were scattered at a mosque near the area after hearing the sound of blasts.

Taliban has denied their involvement in the incident.

It was the fourth rocket attack on the Presidential Palace over the last three years and all have been fired from the same place.
