  • US soldier killed in Afghanistan
    SourcesUS soldier killed in Afghanistan

    One US service member of US-led NATO coalition forces was killed and another wounded following an apparent insider attack in Afghanistan on Monday, the coalition forces said on Tuesday. "The sacrifice of our service member, who volunteered for a mission to Afghanistan to protect his country, is a tragic loss for all who knew and all who will now never know him," General Scott Miller, commander of Resolute Support (RS) and US Forces-Afghanistan, was quoted in a statement as saying, Xinhua reported. The latest death has brought to six the number of US forces killed in Afghanistan since January this year. Additional information will be released as appropriate and the wounded soldier was in a stable condition, according to the statement. Such incidents had also happened in the past when Afghan soldiers turned their weapons against coalition forces and Taliban insurgents mostly claimed responsibility for insider attacks. On July 7, one US soldier was killed and two others were wounded in a similar incident in Uruzgan province. NATO and US forces completed their combat mission in Afghanistan by the end of 2014, after 13 years of military presence in the country. However, around 16,000 foreign forces remained in Afghanistan to help Afghan forces in the fields of training, advising and backing them in the war on insurgents.
