Kabul police spokesman Ferdaws Faramarz confirmed “multiple rockets” had been struck, 

Several photos were shared on social media that showed damage to an external wall at a large medical complex. 

The rocket explosions took place in a few minutes after blasts in Chehel Sutoon and Arzaan Qeemat areas.

The interior ministry said two small “sticky bomb” blasts had been reported this morning, including one that hit a police car, killing one policeman and injuring three others.

So far, no group has taken the responsibility for the blasts.
