THREE U.S. TROOPS WOUNDED IN AFGHANISTAN

Kabul, – Three U.S. troops were wounded on Sunday after an Afghan soldier opened fire on them at a base in the southern province of Helmand, the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said.

The soldiers are receiving medical care, the NATO-led training and assistance mission said in a statement.

Helmand has been one of the most fiercely contested regions of the country, with nearly 1,000 coalition troops killed there since the U.S.-led military intervention in 2001. (QNA)
