The soldier was killed during an assault just a month after another US serviceman died in combat in Afghanistan and two weeks after an insider attack in the province of Herat that caused the death of a NATO-led Resolute Support mission soldier.

One US soldier was killed and one was injured during an “apparent insider attack” in Kabul on Saturday, NATO officials stated Saturday.

“Initial reports indicate the attacker was a member of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces,” NATO’s Resolute Support mission said in a statement, adding that the attacker was killed by “other Afghan forces.”

The mission also reported that the wounded serviceman was flown to a medical facility at Bagram Airfield, in stable condition. An investigation into the case is underway, the statement said without providing any specific details on the incident.

NATO’s mission in Afghanistan was launched in 2015. It includes over 13,000 servicemen who provide training and advice to the Afghan security forces in their fight against terrorism, particularly against the Taliban.

Afghanistan has long been in a state of turmoil, with the government fighting against various terrorist groups.

But the taliban are not terrorists they are a sunni islamic political party, there is a difference.The taliban are resistance fighters to american occupation, just as the hamas are freedom fighters for Palestine against a imperialistic Rothschild nazi terrorist occupation.
Besides who do you think supplies billions in military aid every year to israel and allows it to continue its terrorist acts upon the unarmed Palestinian people.
That’s right it’s not the IRGC.
