Insider Attack on Afghan Base; seven US soldiers injured and evacuated; Taliban takes credit

Good grief! How may more must be killed or injured? Can't we just go turn that place into a lake of glass already? 

This is the second insider attack in June and they are exactly one week apart

BREAKING NEWS: Insider attack on Afghan Base; seven US soldiers injured and evacuated; Taliban takes credit Featured

This is a breaking story and will be updated as new information becomes available.

In the second insider attack, or “green on blue” attack in June by an Afghan soldier against coalition forces, seven US Army soldiers were injured and the shooter, an Afghan soldier, was killed.

This insider attack comes exactly one week after three US Army soldiers were killed by a same type of attack.

US Army Resolute Support Mission put out the following statement:

“Seven U.S. service members were wounded in an insider attack today at Camp Shaheen, Mazar-e Sharif. The wounded service members have been evacuated and are currently receiving treatment.

We are aware of an incident that occurred at Camp Shaheen in Mazar-e Sharif at approximately 2 p.m local time.

At this time we can confirm there are no U.S. or NATO Resolute Support fatalities. U.S soldiers have been wounded. One Afghan soldier was killed and one was wounded in the incident.

The incident is currently under investigation.”

Initial reports of four US soldiers being killed were incorrect.

Reuters and the Associated Press are reporting that Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said an Afghan soldier that supports the Taliban opened fire and killed four US soldiers and injured four others. This proved incorrect.

This comes just a week after four US Army soldiers were killed in an insider attack in Achin, Afghanistan.

The shooting comes just months after the Taliban carried out a deadly raid on the camp, near the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, that killed or wounded dozens people.

Sources suggested as many as 140 people were killed in the attack, which was allegedly in response to the deaths of two Taliban officials in the region.

Ten militants dressed in army uniforms attacked the headquarters; two blew themselves up shortly after entering the camp and the others died during a battle lasting several hours.

On Thursday, a Donald Trump administration official was reported to have said 4,000 more US troops would be sent to the country.

US troops have been fighting in Afghanistan for nearly 16 years against a resilient Taliban.

In February General John Nicholson, commander of US forces in Afghanistan, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that leadership assesses "the current security situation in Afghanistan as a stalemate."

He added: ”We remain concerned about multiple critical factors.”
