US service member killed in Afghanistan ‘insider’ attack
    2018-07-09  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ONE U.S. service member was killed and two others wounded in an apparent insider attack in southern Afghanistan, the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said Saturday.

In a statement, the Taliban said a member of the Afghan security forces opened fire on U.S. troops in the southern province of Uruzgan, killing four people and wounding several others.

Saturday’s incident comes just over a year after three U.S. soldiers were killed by an Afghan soldier in the eastern province of Nangarhar.

Insider attacks, often known as “green on blue” attacks in which Afghan service members or attackers wearing Afghan uniforms fire on U.S. or coalition troops, have been a regular feature of the conflict in Afghanistan, although their frequency has diminished in recent years.

Coalition forces have also tightened security and added extra force protection measures including special “Guardian Angel” units to accompany training units.

The Resolute Support statement said the two wounded Saturday were in a stable condition and the incident was being investigated.

But it gave no further details, saying the name of the service member killed would be withheld until next of kin were notified.
