Three US-led soldiers have been wounded in a bomb attack that hit a tank in Afghanistanâ„¢s southern province of Kandahar, Press TV reports.
Afghan security sources said the attack was carried out in Daman Distric overnight. Local officials say the tank hit a roadside bomb.
The attack came after one US soldier was killed and ten polish troopers were wounded in an attack on a US-Polish base in Afghanistanâ„¢s eastern province of Ghazni.
The Taliban militant group claimed responsibility for the Wednesday attack.
In another incident in western Afghanistan, militants killed another foreign soldier. The soldierâ„¢s nationality is still unknown.
Taliban militants have vowed to use Ëœevery possible tacticâ„¢ to inflict casualties on Afghan and US-led forces.
At least 120 US-led foreign forces have been killed in Afghanistan so far in 2013. Most of the slain soldiers are American.
According to the website icasualties.org, 3,369 US-led soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan since the US-led invasion of the country in 2001.
The rising death toll of US-led foreign forces in Afghanistan has prompted growing opposition to the Afghan war in NATO member states and other countries that have contributed troops to the military occupation.
