Four more troops and service members operating under the ISAF command, including two US soldiers, have been killed in separate insurgent attacks across Afghanistan.
US Navy’s Chief Petty Officer Brian Naranjo confirmed on Monday that two US service members were killed in an impoverished bomb explosion in southern Afghanistan. This brings the total US losses in the country to at least 746.
Meanwhile, a British soldier was shot while on patrol in the Babaji district in the southern province of Helmand, Britain’s Ministry of Defence announced on Monday.
The death brings to 214 the number of the British troops killed in Afghanistan since the US-led invasion of the country in 2001.
Another service member from ISAF was killed on Sunday in a bomb blast in the south of the war-torn country, NATO said without revealing the name or nationality of the person.
The occupation forces have suffered the losses in southern Afghanistan where US and NATO troops have stepped up their operations against guerillas in recent months.
