MOD: delegation created to investigate shooting incident on Afghan and US forces

The Ministry of National Defense has announced that a high-level delegation headed by Gen. Bismillah Wazir, the country’s right-wing leader, has been sent to Nangarhar province.

Two US soldiers were killed and three others were wounded in Saturday’s attack on US troops.

The Taliban and ISIL operate in Nangarhar province, but so far no group has claimed responsibility for the incident.

The attack comes as US President Donald Trump’s recent speech to the people of his country speaks of the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.
