Kabul, July 3 (Xinhua-ANI): Two NATO soldiers were killed in two separate insurgent attacks in Afghanistan, the military alliance confirmed on Tuesday.
"An International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service member died following an insurgent attack in eastern Afghanistan today," the NATO-led ISAF said in a press release.
Another ISAF soldier was killed in similar incident in restive southern part of the country on Monday.
The brief press release gave neither the nationalities of the victims nor the details about the incidents under the ISAF policy.
However, local media reported that a special force member of Australia was killed in an armed attack in southern Uruzgan province on Monday.
Troops mainly from the United States, Britain and Australia have been stationed in the southern region within the framework of ISAF to curb Taliban-linked insurgency there.
Militancy has been on constant rise since the Taliban launched its spring offensive on May 3 this year.
A total of 224 foreign soldiers, mostly Americans, have been killed in Afghanistan so far this year. (Xinhua-ANI)
