KABUL: An Afghan soldier turned his weapon on NATO allies Thursday in the latest in a series of so-called green-on-blue attacks, the US-led International Security Assistance Force said.
"We can confirm that an ANA soldier fired on ISAF members in Laghman province. They returned fire, killing the attacker," an ISAF spokesman said.
No ISAF soldiers were killed in the attack in the eastern province, he said, but in line with policy would not confirm whether any had been wounded.
The shooting is the latest in an increasing number of incidents in which Afghan soldiers have turned their weapons against NATO troops helping Kabul fight a decade-long insurgency.
Just two days ago, an American solider was killed in the east when two men in Afghan army uniforms opened fire on their allies. (AFP)
