USA / AFGHANISTAN :- US Serviceman Dies in Afghanistan ::
A US serviceman died in Afghanistan from injuries sustained in a military operation, the NATO Resolute Support mission said Saturday.
“One U.S. service member has died as a result of wounds sustained during operations in Logar province, Saturday afternoon,” the mission said in a statement without releasing the name of the serviceman or any further details regarding the victim’s identity.
In late October, the Afghan forces, backed by the air forces and artillery, conducted military operations in 12 provinces of the country. The US Department of Defense confirmed that on October 27, a helicopter crashed in Logar Province, killing one US officer and injuring six more.
The United States and its allies launched a military operation in Afghanistan in 2001 after the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on New York City and Washington, DC. The mission in Afghanistan ended in 2014, but on January 1, 2015, NATO announced Resolute Support to train and assist the Afghan security forces.
