The rocket was fired from an unidentified location on the volleyball court of the compound. Apart from the Indian Ambassador’s residence, other mission staff also stay inside the premises.

“No injury reported so far,” a source in New Delhi told Indian media. The incident happened at about 11:15 AM, according to local reports.

In another incident, an explosion was heard at a peace conference in the Shash Darak area of the city, according to the Times of India.

The attack comes amid extremely tight security in the capital following last week’s deadly explosions that claimed over 150 lives and coincides with the launch of the Kabul Process meeting this morning.

President Ghani said at the peace conference that the death toll had climbed to 150, making it the deadliest attack in the Afghan capital since the ouster of the Taliban in 2001.
