Two ISAF service members died in Eastern Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan - Two ISAF service members died as a result of wounds suffered during an IED strike and small arms fire attack on their patrol in Eastern Afghanistan today.

“Our deepest sympathies go out to the families and friends of those soldiers,” said Brigadier-General Richard Blanchette. “We have lost two valuable members of our team. These soldiers died while helping to bring security and peace to the people of Afghanistan.”

It is ISAF policy to not release the nationality of any casualty prior to the relevant national authority doing so.

This incident is under investigation.
