In case you're wondering how things are going in Afghanistan (considering the two decades the U.S. military has spent securing the nation), here's a good visual:
Yep, that's the presidential palace.
I have to give them kuddos for keeping straight faces as they go through their prayers (except for that one dude who TOTALLY freaked out):
President Ashraf Gani seems to have stones of steel tho:
Here's what happened:
President Ashraf Ghani was worshiping in the presidential palace compound in Kabul to celebrate the start of Eid al-Adha, a Muslim holiday, around 8 a.m. when at least three rockets landed outside the heavily fortified grounds, according to Al Jazeera.
A barrage of missiles can be heard whizzing and loudly exploding near the palace, as the men continue to peacefully pray — without reacting to the nearby chaos, the shocking 30-second TV clip shows.
No one was injured by the rockets, and nobody claimed responsibility for them.
The palace sits in a fortified area protected by large cement walls and barbed wire.
After the attacks, Ghani blasted the Taliban in a speech marking the start of the major Muslim festival.
