A security official from the recently deposed government told AFP it was a rocket that “initial information shows hit a house.”

The US carried out a military strike on Sunday in Kabul, two US officials told Reuters.

The two strikes initially appeared to be separate incidents, though information on both remained scarce.

An ISIS-K attack outside Kabul airport on Thursday killed more than 170 people including 13 US military personnel as Afghans queued up attempting to flee Taliban rule.

The US retaliated with a drone strike that they say killed two top ISIS-K members.

US President Joe Biden warned on Saturday that another attack was highly likely.
