Two soldiers from NATO force killed in Afghanistan

A2313123118.jpgKABUL (Reuters) – Insurgents killed two soldiers from NATO-led forces in an attack in eastern Afghanistan on Friday, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said.

Afghanistan has seen a surge in violence this year as the hardline Islamist Taliban steps up its campaign of guerrilla attacks, backed by suicide and roadside bombs to overthrow the pro-Western Afghan government and drive out foreign troops.

“Two ISAF service members died as a result of wounds suffered during an IED strike and small arms fire attack on their patrol in eastern Afghanistan today,” ISAF said in a statement.

The alliance does not release the nationalities of soldiers killed in Afghanistan, but most ISAF troops in eastern Afghanistan are American.
