Another rocket attack on Dutch Afghanistan base

12th September 2011, Comments 0 comments

Another rocket landed near the Dutch camp in the Afghan province of Kunduz on Sunday evening, the Defence Ministry announced on Monday. There are no reports of casualties.

There was a rocket attack on the base on Friday too, but this one landed further away. The ministry comments that it is "unusual for the camp in Kunduz to be the target of rocket attacks".

The former Dutch military base in Kandahar, on the other hand, was regularly the target of attacks. The main Dutch force has left Afghanistan but the Kunduz camp is the base for a mission to train local Afghan police.
