Rockets strike Afghan’s Ghazni city during Ghani’s visit

Published on :

Kabul, Sep 27 (IANS) Three rockets fired by Taliban militants hit Afghan’s Ghazni city during President Ashraf Ghani’s visit on Thursday but caused no loss of life, officials said.

Ghani was visiting the city to review the security situation. According to officials, two of the rockets landed close to the provincial government compound, Khaama Press reported.

“Three rockets fired by Taliban rebels slammed into Ghazni city today morning but fortunately caused no loss of life,” said a government official.

The President’s spokesman Haroon Chakhansuri said that Ghani continued the visit after the attack and met government and military officials as well as religious scholars.

The Taliban briefly captured Ghazni city in August, inflicting countless loss of lives and huge property damages to private and public institutions.

Ghani had earlier promised Ghazni residents to upgrade the war-torn province administration system and development projects.

During his Thursday visit, the President ordered launching a few development projects in the city, including constructing a conference hall and a new hospital, the Presidential Palace said in a media release.
