Taliban fire mortars at Bagram Airbase

16 August, 2012

KABUL: The Taliban claimed Wednesday to have caused damage and casualties to the foreign forces by firing mortars at the Bagram Airport. ISAF, however, said the attack did not cause any significant damage to the facility.

The Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told the Afghan Islamic Press (AIP) their fighters fired two mortars at the Bagram Airbase, the largest base of foreign forces in Afghanistan, last night.

He said both the mortars landed in the base. He said fire erupted in the base after the mortars hit the facility, causing losses and casualties.

Meanwhile, the International Security Assistance Force press office in Kabul, when contacted by the AIP, said: "During the night, two missiles went down in Bagram base. Operational reporting says that there was no significant damage in the base."

Bagram Airbase is the largest base of the foreign forces in Afghanistan.
