#ISIS claims responsibility for the rocket attack near the Afghan presidential palace in #Kabul
[PUBLISH.TWITTER] It might even be true.

Courtesy of Skidmark, the Daily Mail has the usual visual aids. And Tolo News adds:
Sources confirmed that the rockets were fired from the Parwan-e-Se area in Kabul’s District 18 in the north of the city.

The rockets landed in Bagh-e-Ali Mardan and Chaman-e-Hozori areas in Kabul’s District 1 and Manabe Bashari area in Kabul’s District 2 — all near the Presidential Palace, officials said.

But sources from the government said that one rocket landed at the Presidential Palace's compound in which one person was maimed.

"When I saw the car that rockets were fired one after another, I was scared. No one was there in the car," said Tabish, a Kabul resident.

The rockets were fired from a corolla vehicle that was burnt after the incident.

"People were too afraid. It had a loud sound. There were four blasts sound," said Mujib, a Kabul resident.

"Six rockets were fired from this car," said Mohammad Nasim, a Kabul resident who said that people were scattered at a mosque near the area after hearing the sound of blasts.

...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
has denied their involvement in the incident.

It was the fourth rocket attack on the Presidential Palace over the last three years and all have been fired from the same place.
