Insider attack kills US service member in Afghanistan

A USA service member was killed and two others wounded in what North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is calling "an apparent insider attack" in Afghanistan Saturday.

The Taliban said in a statement that a member of the Afghan security forces opened fire on us troops in Uruzgan Province. It added thatthe name of the deceased service member was being withheld until next of kin is notified.

In the April 30 incident, Army Spec. Gabriel D. Conde, 22, was shot by enemy fighters in a firefight in Kapisa province while providing security for U.S. Special Operations troops.

One US service member was killed, and two others wounded during an apparent "insider attack" in southern Afghanistan on Saturday, according to a statement by the NATO Resolute Support mission. The DoD report also said that NATO Resolute Support advisers are working to require better national screening for Afghan security forces personnel.

Green-on-blue or insider attacks, in which a member of the ANSF attacks American service members, have taken place every year since 2008.

The last insider attack that resulted in a US casualty occurred in June 2017, according to NATO Resolute Support officials.

To date this year, three other troops have been killed in hostile incidents in Afghanistan.
