Rocket Attack Hits Kabul Airport Hours After Mattis Arrives

NBC News has reported that The Taliban claimed it fired at least six rockets at Afghanistan's main airport Wednesday in an attack intended to target Defense Secretary James Mattis.

According to Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, no one was injured and Mattis had left the airport in the capital Kabul hours beforehand. The defense secretary was in the country for an unannounced visit alongside NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. It was his first trip to Afghanistan since President Donald Trump announced a new strategy for America's longest war.
