ISAF officials following a press release on Sunday announced, “Two International Security Assistance Force service members died following an insurgent attack in eastern Afghanistan today.”
The source further added, “An International Security Assistance Force service member died following an improvised explosive device attack in eastern Afghanistan today.”
The source did not disclose further information regarding the exact locations of the incidents and nationalities of the deceased soldiers.
International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) generally do not disclose identities of the NATO soldiers killed in Afghanistan, saying, “It is ISAF policy to defer casualty identification procedures to the relevant national authorities.”
This comes as another four NATO service members were killed following separate roadside bomb explosions in southern regions of the country on Saturday.
At least 169 NATO service members including 120 US troops, 21 British troops and 28 soldiers from the other NATO member countries have been killed in various incidents across Afghanistan since the beginning of 2012.
