US service member killed in 'insider attack' in Afghanistan

US Service Member Killed in Apparent Insider Attack, Two Wounded

The ambush occurred in southern Afghanistan, U.S. military officials said in a written statement.

"One U.S. service member was killed and two other U.S. service members were wounded during an apparent insider attack in southern Afghanistan, July 7", said a statement from Resolute Support, the NATO-led military training mission in Afghanistan. Western officials say most insider attacks stem from personal grudges and cultural misunderstandings rather than insurgent plots. "The incident is under investigation", Resolute Support said in a statement.

The secretary of state asserted that the Taliban understands USA resolve and is "beginning to see that they can not wait us out". Task Force 1-28 Infantry is now deployed in support of the 1st Security Force Assistance Brigade.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, on a surprise visit to Afghanistan on Monday, promised support for President Ashraf Ghani's bid to start peace talks with the Taliban and repeated the United States would be willing to take part.

The Taliban have also released a statement, saying an Afghan soldier opened fire on USA soldiers in Uruzgan. But as NPR's David Welna reported last week, a "public information blackout" by the Trump administration has meant that, "since late previous year, the Pentagon's stopped posting those numbers for Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan".

The identity of the service member who was killed will not be released until 24 hours after the next of kin has been notified, which is the policy of the U.S. Defense Department, NATO said in a statement.
