Three rockets were fired onto a diplomatic area in Kabul on Saturday, Afghan police and witnesses said.
 
"The attack occurred at around 6.10 a.m., and the rockets struck localities in Police District 10 and Police District 9," a witness told Xinhua news agency.
 
However, there were reports of any casualties or injuries.
 
One rocket reportedly hit a wall at an embassy and two others exploded close to Resolute Support headquarters, Tolo News quoted the police as saying.
 
Saturday's incident comes after two suicide attacks took place on Friday in Kabul and Ghor province resulting in the deaths of at least 70 people.
 
In Kabul, a suicide bomber detonated explosives inside the Imam Zamam mosque in a neighbourhood predominantly populated by the Shia Hazara minority, reports Efe news.
 
The bomber was standing among the congregation. The attack killed 39 people and injured 45 others, according to the Interior Ministry.
 
About an hour before the blast in Kabul, a suicide attacker detonated explosives at the Khwajagan mosque in the Du-Layna district of Ghor province.
 
The attack occurred as an important anti-Taliban militiaman, Fazal Hayat Khan, and his men were praying inside, provincial authorities said. At least 31 people were killed.
 
So far, no group has claimed responsibility for the three incidents.
