Taliban storm Afghan police compound, kill 5 police

Taliban storm Afghan police compound, kill 5 police”

An Afghan soldier opened fire Saturday at a base shared with USA forces in northern Afghanistan, wounding at least seven US soldiers in the second such insider attack last week.

Afghan policemen gather at the site of an attack Sunday in Gardez.

The NATO-led Resolute Support Mission in Afghanistan said it has opened an investigation, adding no USA or Resolute Support forces were killed.

The statement continued, "The incident is now under investigation".

According to NATO's Resolute Support website, the June 17 attack took place at Camp Shaheen, the headquarters of the Afghan Army's 209th corps.

U.S. troops in Afghanistan now number about 8,400, with another 5,000 from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

According to the Long War Journal, the total number of Coalition deaths from green-on-blue attacks since January 1, 2008 is 152. At least one Afghan was also killed in the incident, while another was injured.

Two suspected insider attacks have hit US troops in Afghanistan - just as Pentagon officials are deciding whether or not to send more troops to the country.

Just in the month of April, a massive attack in April on the same Shaheen base by Taliban militants left scores of Afghan soldiers dead.

A coalition official told CNN that some USA military personnel were wounded and evacuated after what appears to be an insider or "green-on-blue" attack by an Afghan soldier. Nasratullah Jamshidi, said the attacker, an Afghan commando, had been shot at the scene and died on his way to a hospital.

The latest attack has occurred when the White House is prepared to send additional 4,000 American troops to Afghanistan to set up counter terror operations.

At least five officers were killed and 22 people injured yesterday in a Taliban attack on a police headquarters in eastern Afghanistan. USA soldiers have been wounded.

On May 20, two civilians, two police and five militants were killed after Taliban stormed a local bank in the city, 100 km south of Kabul.
