Two soldiers were injured when four rockets landed inside the cantonment area in Peshawar in the early hours of Sunday.

According to the police, the target was apparently Bacha Khan International Airport.

However, all four rockets landed in adjacent areas while one rocket landed inside a brigade office, leaving two soldiers injured.

“There is evidence that all the four rockets were fired from Ghundi Afghan Refugee Camp located in the jurisdiction of Tehkal Police Station as opposed to the previous practice of targeting the airport from Sarband, Pishtakhara and Suleman Khel,” a police official said.

“This is a new development indeed,” added the police official.

He said both wounded soldiers were rushed to the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) where their condition was said to be stable.
