A bomb blast kills two more US soldiers in southern Afghanistan, making July the deadliest month for the US and its allies since the 2001 invasion of the country.
“Two International Security Assistance Force service members were killed today in an IED strike that occurred in southern Afghanistan,” the NATO-led force said in a statement on Wednesday.
A spokesman with the US military in Afghanistan confirmed that “They were United States military members.”
The alliance did not reveal the exact location of the lethal incident.
Taliban-linked militants have killed dozens of US-led troops across the volatile country during last two weeks. Nearly sixty foreign troops have so far been killed in Afghanistan this month.
