On Tuesday, three unnamed US soldiers were killed near Ghazni City, Afghanistan. They died when a roadside bomb detonated.


The three military men were believed to be part of a Special Forces unit fighting the Taliban in Ghazni Province. A few soldiers were injured in the accident.

The deaths of the three military men were titled as the worst loss of life in the country for the US this year. Besides those who died, another three soldiers and an American contractor were wounded.

The incident occurred near Ghazni City, in the southeastern province of the same name. A witness revealed that a roadside bomb had gone off as an American convoy passed on the highway.

“The convoy set off a roadside mine, and there was smoke all over the place. It nearly took our lives, too. The road was blocked, and a few minutes later helicopters landed and took the dead.”

Hamed, a taxi driver who was on the highway, said he saw an American vehicle that had been destroyed by the bomb. He shared:


“The situation was not good, and the helicopters were bombing the area. I think six or seven Taliban were killed too.”

The Taliban has since issued a statement claiming responsibility for the late morning attack. The three soldiers killed were not identified, in line with American policy to wait until 24 hours after the next of kin are notified.


However, the men were believed to be part of a Special Forces unit fighting the Taliban in Ghazni Province. The four Americans who were wounded in the explosion were evacuated for medical treatment.

The latest murders bring the number of US service members who have been killed this year to 13. Many of them died in insider attacks which were blamed on infiltrators or turncoats among allied Afghan military forces.


Ghazni officials revealed that there had been heavy fighting throughout the province in recent days. Another soldier was killed three days ago in the country.

Sgt. Leandro A.S. Jasso, 25, was an Army Ranger from Washington State who was shot accidentally by a soldier from an Afghan “partner force.” The incident happened during a fight with militants linked to Al Qaeda in the southwestern province of Nimroz.

Officials shared that, “There were no indications he was shot intentionally.”
