KABUL, AFGHANISTAN – AUGUST 30: A view from the scene after at least five rockets were fired at the Afghan capital Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport on August 30, 2021. Local sources confirmed the rockets were fired but intercepted via defense systems installed at the airport. Casualties are feared, but no immediate details were available. US President Joe Biden had warned an attack was “very likely,” as the clock is ticking for the full withdrawal of US forces by the deadline, Tuesday, set by the Taliban, who took control of Kabul on Aug. 15.
