Two NATO coalition troops were killed at a joint base in Zhari district in Kandahar on Thursday after two Afghan men, one of whom was apparently a soldier, turned their weapons against them.
Thursday’s shootings come less than a week after two NATO troops were shot and killed inside the Interior Ministry in Kabul. The Taliban took responsibility of the killings and said that the shooter was an insurgent infiltrator in the Afghans’ security forces. The incident prompted the top U.S. general in Afghanistan to recall all NATO personnel working in Afghan ministries in Kabul.
The shootings are the latest in a series of attacks by Afghan security forces — or militants disguised in their uniforms — against U.S. and other members of the coalition forces.
Last year, there were 566 coalition military fatalities in Afghanistan. This year, there have been more than 40 deaths so far.
Here are some of the major incidents since 2009 of attacks by Afghans wearing police or army uniforms against NATO forces.
