2 ISAF soldiers killed, several wounded

KABUL, Afghanistan (July 5) – Two ISAF soldiers were killed during an operation in eastern Afghanistan. Several others were wounded, including ISAF soldiers, Afghan National Army soldiers and a civilian contractor.

“ISAF soldiers throughout Afghanistan today are mourning for the fallen soldiers and their families,” said Lt. Col. Maria Carl, ISAF spokesperson.  “This is the second incident today in which our soldiers lost their lives to bring peace and security here, far from their homes.”

In accordance with NATO policy, ISAF does not release a casualty’s nationality prior to the relevant national authority doing so.
