At the same time, the Khaama Press reported that at least six services of the U.S. Military were killed or wounded in an explosion triggered by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) attack in southern Ghazni province of Afghanistan. The wounded service members and contractor were evacuated and are receiving medical care, according to the military. While the Taliban is guilty of inflating casualties that it inflicts on Afghan and U.S. forces, the operations themselves often can be confirmed in the Afghan press.

Taliban militants said they carried out the attack, their latest near the strategic city south of the capital. The two districts, which are predominantly comprised of Hazara populations, were considered to be the most secure rural districts in all of the country.

In this undated file photo released by the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM)/Department of Defence shows Sgt. Leandro Jasso, 25, who was assigned to Company A, 2d Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington.

Early interviews indicate the tragic accident occurred when the partnered force became engaged in a close-quarter battle during an assault on one of multiple barricaded al Qaeda shooters, the statement said. "All of us, and throughout our coalition of 41 nations, recognize the threats posed by groups such as al Qaeda and ISIS and are determined to fight them here". Taylor was the mayor of Ogden, Utah, and a member of the Utah Army National Guard. The great majority of US forces withdrew by the end of 2014, but those still in the country often are involved in supporting combat situations on the ground as well as by air.




On Tuesday, NATO's Resolute Support mission said Jasso's death was likely the result of friendly fire from an Afghan security forces unit.

The latest deaths come just days after a USA soldier was killed in a firefight with Al Qaeda forces Saturday, defense officials told Fox News.

Resolute Support said upon further investigation, it appears Jasso was "accidentally shot by our Afghan partner force".
