Afghanistan — No Australian, Afghan or Coalition troops wounded in rocket attack at Tarin Kowt

Tal­iban insur­gents launched three rock­ets at the Mul­ti Nation­al Base at Tarin Kowt in the ear­ly hours of Wednes­day the 28th of April.

No Aus­tralian per­son­nel were wound­ed in the rock­et attack.

Two rock­ets missed the base with one land­ing close to local civil­ians in Tarin Kowt. There were no reports of injuries to civil­ians.

The third land­ed inside the base, but explod­ed with­out dam­ag­ing equip­ment or wound­ing coali­tion sol­diers.

Rock­et attacks by insur­gents remain large­ly inef­fec­tive, although they con­tin­ues to place the lives of Afghan civil­ians, Afghan secu­ri­ty forces and coali­tion per­son­nel at risk.
