The acting defence minister’s Kabul residence was the target of a car bomb attack and gunfight on Tuesday, according to the Defense Ministry.
Acting Defense Minister Gen. Bismillah Mohammadi and his family were not at home at the time of the attack, according to the ministry, and no one in his immediate family was injured.
Fawad Aman, a Defense Ministry spokesman, told CNN that Afghan security forces killed four assailants during the violence. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
According to TOLO News in Afghanistan, ambulances left the area about an hour after the attack began, but no one was injured or killed.
The car bombing occurred at Mohammadi’s guest house in Kabul’s District 10, Shirpoor, which is home to many high-ranking government officials.
According to a security source, two attackers entered a building near MP Azim Mohseni’s office after the attack. Mohseni stated that he was not present in his office at the time.
