Nov. 21 (UPI) — A rocket strike in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Saturday killed 11 folks and injured over two dozen, officers stated.

Inside Affairs Ministry spokesman Tariq Arian stated 23 rockets exploded close to a college and buying space, and different locations in downtown Kabul.

A burning truck with launch tubes in its mattress was discovered within the neighborhood, which indicated the automobile was used to fireplace the munitions, safety officers stated.

The SITE Intelligence Group monitoring Islamic State bulletins stated the Islamic State, which used an identical assault in March to focus on the presidential inauguration, claimed duty for the assault.

The rockets landed in Kabul shortly after two improvised explosive units exploded in Chehel Sutoon and Arzaan Qeemat, Tolo Information reported.

The bomb in Arzaan Qeemat killed one safety power member and injured three extra folks.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in Qatar hours after the deadly rocket assaults in Kabul.

Pompeo met with Afghan and Taliban negotiators in an effort to attempt to resume peace negotiations.

On Tuesday, the Pentagon stated it could minimize U.S. troops in Afghanistan from 4,500 to 2,500 by Jan.15.
