A wounded Afghan girl, Seweeta Saberi, 17, receives treatment at Wazir Akbar Khan hospital after militants launched a gun and bomb attack on the Interior Ministry in Kabul on May 30, 2018.
However, the ministry said the Afghan forces reacted on time and quickly to suppress the attack and managed to eliminate all the militants involved in they manage to enter the compound of the ministry.
"To avoid civilian casualties and only cause damage to enemy military, we are asking Kabul residents to keep away", said a statement published online.
Lt. Col. Martin O'Donnell, a spokesman for the USA -led coalition in Afghanistan, said a weapon system known as the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, or HIMARS, which is capable of firing GPS-guided rockets, destroyed a command-and-control position that was a known meeting place for high-level Taliban leaders.
The Taliban and the Afghan IS affiliate have both carried out scores of attacks, mainly targeting security forces and the country's Shiite minority, that have killed hundreds of people in recent years. Their relentless assaults underscore the struggles that Afghan forces have faced since the United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation concluded their combat mission in Afghanistan at the end of 2014.

Separately, the USA military said Wednesday that more than 50 senior Taliban commanders were killed when an artillery rocket system struck a meeting in the Musa Qala district of Helmand province in southern Afghanistan on May 24.
O'Donnell said that because of the large number of leaders killed and their involvement in a range of attack planning, the impact of the HIMARS strike "will be felt beyond Helmand province".
IS claimed responsibility just hours after the noon attack in Kabul.
The Taliban denied the US military's account, calling it "propaganda" and claiming that the strike hit two civilian houses, resulting in the deaths of five civilians.
"The attackers had long hair and started shooting at police force members", said Mohammad Salim, a police soldier.
Sources have said National Directorate of Security (NDS) operatives were prevented by police force members from entering the area to help end the attack.
