At least a dozen missiles have been fired in Kabul, targeting the diplomatic zone and landing near the presidential palace. The attack came as President Ashraf Ghani was speaking at an Eid prayer ceremony.

Rockets landed in four different parts of Kabul on Tuesday morning, according to Tolo. The missiles hit near the diplomatic area and some reportedly landed near the presidential palace. The outlet said, citing officials, that at least 12 missiles exploded in the city, adding that locals say there might have been more than 20.

The first rocket hit somewhere “near the presidency,” the second near a NATO compound and the US Embassy in Kabul, AP reported citing a police official. Black smoke was seen rising from the buildings as military helicopters were flying near the Eidgah Mosque in Reka Khana district, where clashes are reportedly ongoing.
