BREAKING: 2 U.S. Soldiers KILLED, 2 Injured In Deadly ‘INSIDER ATTACK’… Here’s What We Know


Two U.S. soldiers were killed and two others wounded when an Afghan soldier opened fire on them in eastern Afghanistan, a spokesperson for an Afghan governor said.

“An Afghan army soldier opened fire and killed two American soldiers and injured two others,” Attauallah Khogiani, spokesperson for the governor of Nangahar province, said. “The Afghan army soldier was killed in return fire.”

The Taliban claimed responsibility in a statement by Taliban spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid, who said the attack was committed by one of the group’s fighters who had joined the Afghan army, ABC reported.

A Pentagon spokesman, Lt. Damien Horvath, said, “We are aware of an incident in Eastern Afghanistan. We will release more information when appropriate.”

This isn’t the first time insider attacks have happened in Afghanistan.

In April of 2015 an American soldier was killed in a shooting incident in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad in which at least two other U.S. troops were wounded when an Afghan soldier opened fire at them.

Also, an Afghan soldier killed three American contractors on January 29 that same year. The shooter was also killed in that incident.
