A U.S. service member was injured Thursday during operations in Afghanistan’s eastern Nangarhar province, the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said.
“In partnership with the Afghan National Defense Security Forces, we can confirm an active ground engagement occurred today in the Achin district of Nangarhar province. No coalition service members were killed in the engagement. One U.S. service member was wounded and is in stable condition at a medical treatment facility,” Captain Tom Gresback, Public Affairs Director at Resolute Support headquarters, told The Defense Post.
Resolute Support is investigating details of the incident with the Afghans, he added.
Earlier, 23 Taliban militants including three local commanders were reported killed during Afghan special forces operations in the southern Khogyani district.
