German Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) came under rocket attacks in the wee hours of Saturday in Kunduz province of northern Afghanistan, a spokesman of the base said.

"Fife rockets fired from unknown location at 1:00 a.m. local time (2030 GMT) landed close to German PRT team base outside Kunduz city but caused no loss of life or damage," Nasir Alkozai told newsmen.

He also added this is the first time that German military base came under attack since January this year in the relatively peaceful northern province.

Some 3,800 German troops within the framework of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) have been serving in Afghanistan to help stabilize security in the post-Taliban country.
