Three NATO service members sustained non-life-threatening injuries in an apparent failed ‘Green on Blue Attack’ in South of Afghanistan on Monday.

“This afternoon a Resolute Support convoy was fired on in Kandahar province by a member of the Afghan Civil Order Police,” the alliance said in a statement.

The statement further added “Three Resolute Support service members in the convoy sustained non-life-threatening injuries.”

The alliance also added that the Resolute Support forces killed the attacker in return fire.

“We are reviewing the incident with our Afghan security partners,” the statement said, adding that “Resolute Support continuously assesses force protection measures and we adapt and adjust based on the environment.”
