Two ISAF servicemen killed in southern Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan — Two ISAF servicemen were killed in southern Afghanistan when insurgents attacked a patrol Nov. 27.

“It is with great sorrow that we must announce these brave servicemen’s deaths as we offer our sympathies to these men’s loved ones,” said Brigadier General Richard Blanchette, ISAF spokesperson. “These servicemen’s deaths are an irreplaceable loss to all of us who fight for the peace and stability of Afghanistan.”

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