‘US-led soldier killed in E Afghanistan’

A US-led soldier has died of injuries in eastern Afghanistan, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) says.

According to ISAF, the unidentified soldier died of non-battle related injuries in the eastern part of the war-stricken country on Tuesday.

June has been marked as the deadliest month of the year for US-led foreign troops in Afghanistan.

At least 27 foreign troops died in the war-hit Afghanistan, mostly Americans.

According to the icasualties website, at least 3,330 foreign soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan since the US-led invasion of the country in 2001, which was conducted as part of Washingtonâ„¢s so-called war on terror.

The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but insecurity continues to rise across Afghanistan, despite the presence of foreign troops.

The increasing number of foreign military casualties in Afghanistan has caused widespread anger in the United States and other NATO member states, undermining public support for the Afghan war.
