RS confirms its members killed in Herat

A Resolute Support service member was killed following an apparent insider attack in western Herat province, the coalition forces said Monday.

“A Resolute Support service member was killed in Herat province today. Two other Resolute Support service members were wounded in the incident,” the RS said in a statement.

The initial reports indicate the attack was committed by a member of the Afghan security forces, the statement said.

The RS said further details will be shared after the appropriate national authorities have followed their processes for releasing information.

This comes as early in April, two US service members were killed in insider attacks.

Just one day after an apparent insider attack killed a US soldier, another American service member killed in an incident in the eastern part of the country.

Such incident had also happened in the past when Afghan soldiers turned their weapons against coalition forces and Taliban insurgents mostly claimed responsibility for insider attacks.

Over 2,400 service members, reports to Stars and Stripes, have given their lives in the war in Afghanistan, which has been raging on with no end in sight for 17 years.
