The troops were killed in action while battling ISIS-K in partnership with Afghan defense forces in the same area in the Achin district of eastern Nangarhar province where a U.S. MC-130 aircraft dropped the 21,600-pound Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb (MOAB), known as the “Mother of All Bombs” 2 weeks ago on ISIS tunnels and caves.

Roughly 100 ISIS were killed in the bombing.

Gen. John W. Nicholson, Commander, U.S. Forces-Afghanistan said, “The fight against ISIS-K is important for the world, but sadly, it is not without sacrifice. On behalf of all U.S. Forces and our coalition partners, I offer our deepest sympathies to the families, friends and fellow service members of our fallen comrades.”

Next of kin have been notified. In keeping with U.S. military policy, the names and of those killed will not be released until 24 hours after next-of-kin notification.

Military.com reports that Defense Secretary Jim Mattis made an unannounced visit to Kabul last week to assess the deteriorating security situation across Afghanistan and the long-standing request of Army Gen. John Nicholson, commander of U.S. Forces-Afghanistan and NATO’s Resolute Support mission, for a “few thousand” more U.S. troops to bolster the train, advise and assist operations.

Currently, the U.S. has about 8,500 troops in Afghanistan, backed by about 5,000 troops from NATO members.

Meanwhile, Army Times reports that more than 5,700 soldiers will deploy this summer and fall, with some going to Europe and others to Afghanistan, the Army announced Thursday.

About 4,000 of those soldiers — from the 1st Infantry Division’s 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team — will deploy this fall to Europe in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve.

About 1,700 soldiers from two different units will deploy to Afghanistan, the Army also announced Thursday.
