The Army maintains its operations at Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA) in Afghanistan after the rocket attack registered this morning, reported the White House.

“National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and Chief of Staff Ron Klain have briefed the President (Joe Biden) on the rocket attack on Hamid Karzai International Airport.” and that “operations continue without interruption,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement.

For his part, Joe Biden “has reconfirmed his order that the commanders redouble their efforts to prioritize doing everything necessary to protect our forces on the ground,” he added.

Several rocket explosions took place early this morning in Kabul this Monday, two days after two explosive attacks will kill at least six civilians in the Afghan capital.

The rockets were fired from the Khair Khana area near the Kabul airport, according to eyewitnesses quoted by the Afghan news channel Tolo.

At the moment there is no official information on the causes of the explosion, the magnitude of the damage or if there were victims in these incidents.

Today’s attack took place after two more explosions occurred in the vicinity of Kabul airport on Sunday, killing at least six people. one caused by the attack of a US drone against a vehicle in which supposed members of the Islamic State (IS) were traveling and another by the impact of a rocket against a house.

The Government has warned of “credible threats” against the Kabul airport, where US troops are concentrated and where on Thursday there was an attack that left at least 170 dead.
