An Afghan soldier opened fire on American military team at Afghan Army camp southwest of Kabul on Wednesday October 19, two Americans were killed and three other were injured in the last ‘green on blue’ attack.
NATO Resolute Support Afghanistan released that one US soldier had killed and one US civilian. “One U.S. service member and two U.S. civilians also sustained wounds and are currently stable.” said the statement.
Spokesman of Afghan defense ministry Gen. Dawlat Waziri said one member of Afghan Armed force opened fire on a group of coalition force around 11:00 a.m. local time at the largest Afghan Army Shouting training camp, southwest of Kabul.
The attacker remained unknown. “… an unknown assailant, who was later killed.” said NATO Resolute Support’s statement.
“They were conducting duties as part of the larger NATO mission to Train, Advise, and Assist the Afghan security services.” added the statement.
Although the US and NATO deaths enormously decreased after US and NATO majors troops withdraw Afghanistan, green on blue attacks remained a threat for the troops in Afghanistan.
Clashes between Afghan Army and the coalition force which named as ‘green on blue attacks’, had reached at its highest level in 2012, when 15 percent of the coalition deaths of the year was made by ‘green on blue’ attacks.
