Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry said that a total of 23 rockets hit targets across Kabul.

At least one rocket landed in an office inside the capital’s diplomatic quarter, but it did not explode, according to reports.

The Taliban denied any links to the attack. Hours later, Islamic State issued a statement taking responsibility for the barrage.
