  • A U.S. service member was killed and two others were wounded in an “apparent insider attack” in southern Afghanistan

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

A USA service member has been killed and two others injured in what appears to be an insider attack in Afghanistan, Nato says.

An insider attack is when a member of the Afghan National Security Forces, who U.S.military personnel is advising and training attacks a USA service member, a Military.com report said.

This is the third combat fatality in Afghanistan this year.

The name of the service member who was killed will be withheld until 24 hours after next of kin is notified, in line with policy, the statement said.

That information could not be immediately verified by Afghan or North Atlantic Treaty Organisation officials. A Pentagon report last month said there were 47 so-called "green-on-green" attacks, or incidents where Afghan soldiers turn on their own side, so far this year. They became more rare as the number of USA troops shrunk afterward, and as the military coalition added security precautions.
