More than a hundred passengers on board a Spicejet flight had a lucky escape on Thursday after a rocket attack at Kabul airport.
The rocket was fired by suspected Taliban militants at around 12.30pm when the plane was readying for take-off. The airport was shut down briefly after which the flight departed Kabul.
“Passengers, crew and the aircraft have arrived safely in Delhi. The attack was aimed at military targets,” said a Spicejet spokesperson.
The aviation ministry is likely to hold a meeting to discuss the safety of operations to Afghanistan. Air India also operates out of Kabul.
