Rockets Land Near Sayaf’s Residence in Paghman Kabul

(Last Updated On: July 20, 2017)

At least Five rockets have reportedly landed near the residence of Abdul Rab Rassoul Sayyaf, a former Afghan lawmaker and one of the prominent political and Jihadi leaders of the country, in Paghman district of central Kabul province on Thursday.

Sources said the incident took place Thursday morning in Paghman district after five rockets fired from unknown location landed in the vicinity close to Sayyaf’s house.

No group including Taliban and Daesh have claimed responsibility so far.

Several rockets were also fired on the residence of Sayyaf earlier in May last year but the attack did not result into any casualties.

In the post-9/11 era Sayyaf played the Afghan factions, eventually controlling the Ittehad-al-Islam, which by 2005 had been transformed into a political party named the Islamic Dawah Organization of Afghanistan.
