NATO soldiers, civilian contractor killed E. Afghanistan
(Global Times) – June 2, 2013 – Two soldiers and a civilian contractor of the NATO-led coalition forces were killed Saturday in two separate incidents in eastern Afghanistan.
“One International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service member and one ISAF Civilian was killed during a direct fire attack in eastern Afghanistan today,” said the NATO-led ISAF in a press statement.
Another coalition service member was killed in an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attack.
However, it did not reveal the nationalities of the victims under the ISAF policy.
The Taliban insurgent group, which has been waging an insurgency of more than one decade, launched in late April an annual rebel offensive against Afghan and about 100,000 NATO-led forces stationed in the country.
The latest casualties bring the number of foreign soldiers killed in Afghanistan to 70 this year. (Click HERE for original article)
