An Afghan soldier opened fire on US troops today at a military base in Balkh province and wounded seven American soldiers.
Today’s insider attack, also known as green-on-blue attack, is the second of its kind in the last week, and the third reported so far this year.
Resolute Support, NATO’s command in Afghanistan, confirmed that seven US troops were wounded and “evacuated for treatment.”
One Afghan soldier was killed and another was wounded.
It is unclear if the Afghan soldier acted on his own, or if he was turned or infiltrated by the Taliban to carry out the assault.
The Taliban have not commented on the incident at this time.
This latest insider attack took place at the Afghan National Army’s 209th Shaheen Corps Headquarters in Mazar-i-Sharif in Balkh province.
The 209th Shaheen Corps Headquarters was the scene of a deadly assault just two months ago, when 10 Taliban fighters fought their way into the base and slaughtered more than 140 Afghan soldiers before being gunned down.
The Taliban said it infiltrated the Afghan National Army to carry out that attack. Afghanistan’s Minister of Defense and the Army chief of staff resigned, and four Army Corps commanders were fired in the wake of the assault.
Taliban views insider attacks as a key tactic to defeat US.
