Car Bomb Blast Hits Romanian Troop Convoy in Southern Afghanistan

Car Bomb Blast Hits Romanian Troop Convoy in Southern Afghanistan”

At least three Romanian soldiers were killed or wounded in a suicide attack in southern Kandahar province of Afghanistan.

"A small number of Resolute Support service members were wounded today when a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device targeted their patrol in Kandahar", the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission said in a statement.

In early August, two US soldiers were killed and four others wounded in a similar attack near Kandahar airport for which Taliban militants had claimed responsibility. It said that additional information would be disclosed as appropriate.

No other details of the incident have been provided so far.

But he said there was only one attack on a coalition patrol in the Kandahar region on September 15.

A USA military helicopter flies over the site of a suicide bomb that struck a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation convoy in Kandahar south of Kabul, Afghanistan, Aug. 2, 2017. The militant group frequently makes exaggerated claims about its battlefield gains.

Taliban insurgents routinely have targeted Afghan security forces, but their attacks on foreign troops appear to have intensified since U.S. President Donald Trump announced his "new strategy" for Afghanistan aiming to break the military stalemate with the Taliban.

But the government in Kabul is struggling to stamp out insurgents following the departure of most North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces from Afghanistan in 2014. "The service members were taken to a medical facility at the Kandahar airfield for treatment". "NATO forces ... remain permanent targets of potential insurgent attacks".
