Two missiles hit Thursday near the place where Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani made a speech, according to local authorities, in the city of Gazni in central Asia.
The two grenades fell about 200 meters from where the ceremony was held, where Ghani was held. Three people were injured, one of whom was seriously injured, the Gazni Jaliqdad Regional Council said Akbari.
After the attack, several helicopters flew over the city. All streets have been closed to traffic since the previous day due to the celebration of the event. The regional official hopes that President Ghani will understand the situation better after an attack. Another local politician has said that the city was attacked with four rockets and one of them hit a civilian house.
In 2018, the Taliban militiamen launched a large-scale offensive to take control of the city of Gazni. Currently, militiamen are in control of half of the region’s districts and maintain pressure against government forces in the other districts, including several rural areas in the provincial capital.
