Two rockets were fired at the Kandahar airport in Afghanistan on Tuesday apparently targeting a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) aircraft, reported Express News.
Both the rockets failed to hit the runway and fell outside the airport thus resulting in no damage.
Sources said that the aircraft, PK 199, was preparing to take off for Quetta when the rockets were launched. The passengers and crew members on board remained inside the plane.
The attacks delayed the flight by two hours but the passengers were kept unaware to avoid panic.
The aircraft, carrying 20 passengers, soon took off and reached its destination Quetta.
A recent report by an Islamabad-based think tank showed that the year 2012 witnessed an unprecedented increase in cross-border rocket and mortar attacks by the Afghan Nation Army (ANA) into Pakistan.
