'Insider' Attack Wounds US Soldier in E. Afghanistan
US 'launches airstrike' in Afghanistan after apparent insider attack
12 January, 2018, 22:25
The U.S. military says one of its soldiers was wounded when insurgents launched an attack in eastern Afghanistan's remote Achin district of Nangarhar province.
The episode unfolded in the Achin district of Nangarhar province, the stronghold of the Islamic State's affiliate in Afghanistan.
Achin district administrative chief Ismail Shinwari confirmed the incident but did not elaborate further saying still there is no information available regarding the cause of the incident and possible casualties.
On the other hand, the Taliban group claims that the attack was carried out by one their fighters who had managed to infiltrate among the public uprising forces ranks.
Gresback said they were investigating the incident.
At the end of the meeting "multiple members of the insurgent group" started shooting, killing the militia leader and wounding the USA soldier and interpreter.
In a statement sent to VOA, Mujahid said American forces were engaged in a meeting with members of a pro-government Afghan militia when two Taliban infiltrators opened fire on them.
Insider attacks were a huge problem for U.S. troops in Afghanistan until recent years, when rules were put in place to limit direct contact between United States and Afghan security forces. The militia leader was killed, and the American service member and the interpreter were wounded. Afghan forces backed by USA air power routinely conduct anti-terrorism operations in the province bordering Pakistan. The US has recently relaxed those rules to allow more embedding of troops in Afghan forces.
Achin is the same district where a USA soldier was killed and four others wounded during a New Year's Day combat operation.
