US-led soldier killed in E Afghanistan
US-led soldier killed in E Afghanistan

A foreign soldier serving with the US-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) has been killed in a militant attack in eastern Afghanistan.

ISAF released a statement, saying the soldier died on Monday, but it did not disclose the trooper’s nationality and the exact location of the attack.

The latest death has brought the number of US-led forces killed in the war-torn country so far this year to 33.

The assault came after a helicopter belonging to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) crashed in southern Afghanistan on May 28, leaving at least one foreign soldier dead.

In April, five British soldiers were killed when their Lynx chopper came down during a routine flight near an airbase in Chaghri village in Takhta Pul district of Kandahar Province.

According to the figures released by the website icasualties.org, 3,442 foreign soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan since the US-led war began in the country more than twelve years ago.

The increasing number of military casualties in Afghanistan has caused widespread anger in the US and other NATO member states, undermining public support for the Afghan war.

There are currently more than 50,000 foreign troops in Afghanistan, including some 33,000 US troops.

US President Barack Obama had promised to withdraw all combat troops by the end of 2014. However, he announced on May 27 that he plans to keep some 9,800 troops in Afghanistan by 2016.

The US and its allies invaded Afghanistan in 2001 as part of the so-called war on terror. The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but the country is still gripped by insecurity.
