Two Isaf Troops Killed in Afghanistan

News - Afghanistan


Two Isaf troops were killed in seperate incidents in Afghanistan on Friday - one in the east in an insurgent attack and another in the south from a "non-battle related injury", the Nato-led security force Isaf said.

One Isaf service member was killed in an insurgent attack in eastern Afghanistan, Isaf said late Friday.

Earlier in the day, Isaf released a statement saying an Isaf soldier had died as a result of a non-battle related injury in the country's south.

Isaf did not provide more details about the location of the incidents or nationality of the troops, as per its protocol to leave identification to the national authorities.

So far this year 375 Isaf troops have died in Afghanistan -- around 286 US troops, 43 from the UK, and 46 troops from other nations.

There are now 66,000 US troops in Afghanistan, joined by about 37,000 from allied countries fighting insurgents in the country.

Isaf troops will leave Afghanistan by the end of 2014 after Afghan forces take full security responsibility.
