Rockets fired by militants struck a main U.S.-NATO base in Bagram district of Afghanistan’s Parwan province, north of Kabul, on Saturday, with no immediate word on casualties and extent of damage.
The spokesperson of Parwan governor, Wahida Shahkar said that 12 rockets had been placed in a vehicle, five of which had been fired at Bagram Airport in Parwan province.
The remaining seven rockets had fallen into the hands of Afghan security forces before being fired, she added.
