'Star Wars' robot that thwarted ISIS-K missile attack on US planes: C-RAM blasted jihadists' rockets before they could hit Kabul airport targets

At least five rockets fired at Kabul airport from the back of a car as US forces try to evacuate Afghanistan

Some fell short, one was shot down by the US's C-RAM weapons defense system, and another did not go off

ISIS-K claimed responsibility for the strike, which came the day after a US Reaper drone blew up what was believed to be a group of ISIS-K suicide bombers preparing an attack on the airport - killing 10 people

An ISIS-K suicide bombing that struck the airport last week killed 170 people including 13 US Marines

Rockets fell as US races to evacuate more than 3,000 troops still at the airfield before August 31 deadline
