There were few initial details about Sunday’s incident, as well as a rocket that struck a neighborhood just northwest of the airport, killing a child, reports say.

An Afghan official who spoke on condition of anonymity reportedly said the explosion appeared to have been caused by a rocket that hit home. It wasn’t immediately clear if the house that was hit was the target of the U.S. strike.

Earlier, a drone strike in Nangarhar Province over the weekend near the border killed two members of the group, the said.

Earlier Sunday, the United States Embassy in the Afghan capital said there was a “specific, credible threat” to the airport area.

Sunday’s announcements come amid the American military’s evacuation there, despite concerns about possible thousands of U.S.-supporting Afghans and Americans staying behind.
