Defense Secretary Mattis was the 'target of a Taliban attack' that saw 29 rockets land at Kabul airport, leaving one Afghan dead and 11 others injured | 27 Sept 2017 | US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was the intended target of a rocket attack near an Afghanistan airport on Wednesday, according to the Taliban. A video has been released showing a militant firing one of the 40 rockets, which killed at least one Afghan woman and injured 11 others. Another 29 rocket-propelled grenades were fired toward Kabul international airport after Mattis touched down. Mattis condemned the attack as a 'criminal act by terrorists', adding that it was a 'classic definition of what the Taliban are up to here now'. The Taliban claimed responsibility and its spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, tweeted that Mattis's plane had been the target of the attack.
