A police rocket destroyed a vehicle belonging to an armed terrorist group in Berlin on Tuesday morning, the lower house of parliament in Germany voted later that day, and officials confirmed it to Europe 1 radio.

The incident took place around 12:10 a.m. local time as five suspected militants were going through a refugee registration area in Pfaffenamt, a neighborhood near the eastern boundary of the city center, a police spokesman said in statement. The police unit was stationed next to the area during the duck-and-cover defensive operation.

A police radar system, equipped with a tracking device, spotted a vehicle in the southwestern end of the area in no man's land in an attempt to move without an appropriate notification, Beate Kosneck told Ekstra Bladet newspaper.

"Based on that, a police officer called for back-up, and was able to demonstrate his orders," she said. "The vehicle was immediately targeted and exploded."

The assailants routed of the trailer and fled the area, reportedly during front-line operations of the terror investigations office called AaFRI. Several nameless people are arrested, though the figures involved and their identities are unknown, the government says.
