Afghanistan: attack of the taliban against a convoy of Nato victims

Two U.S. service members died after their convoy came under attack in Afghanistan.

Shiites are a minority in Afghanistan and have been threatened by the affiliate of the Islamic State group that operates in the country's east. Herat borders Iran whose capital Tehran was attacked by the so-called Islamic State in June.

"One of the troop vehicle's was damaged in the attack but there are no reports of casualties", Tolo news quoted Governor's media office as saying.

In a press statement, the highest Islamic Jurist in Egypt warned the Afghani people against falling into the trap of sectarian strife from these terrorist attacks. The target of the attack was Kabul's heavily fortified diplomatic area in the "Green Zone".

The Taliban claims it has thousands of fighters trained to execute suicide bombings. A mid-July deadline set by the Pentagon to complete its war strategy has come and gone and Trump's own views on the Afghan war remain unclear.

Kandahar is on the Afghan border with Pakistan.

On Monday, fighters belonging to ISIL, also known as ISIS, claimed responsibility for a suicide blast at the Iraqi embassy in Kabul that killed at least two Afghan guards. Representatives of Operation Inherent Resolve announced that another service member was killed in a non-combat related incident in Kuwait that same day.

When he came to, he saw a military vehicle on fire on the road.

But the Taliban have shown no interest in peace talks. "The issue of giving away grants and then taking them away is a bit complicated", Khadim Hussain, a Peshawar-based political analyst, said.

However, given the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan, the Obama administration repeatedly postponed the withdrawal. In addition, the poppy trade that supports the Taliban is flourishing. He gave no further details and the Pentagon declined comment on any wounded.
