News: ISAF service member killed in southern Afghanistan

Courtesy Story

KABUL, Afghanistan — An International Security Assistance Force service member was killed in an improvised explosive device strike that occurred yesterday in southern Afghanistan.

"We mourn the loss of another courageous soldier, who died for the honorable cause of Afghanistan and of its people. Our heartfelt thoughts are with his family, friends and comrades during this difficult time," said Brig. Gen. Éric Tremblay, ISAF spokesperson.

"Although it will be hard, we will not be deterred from succeeding in this U.N.-sanctioned, NATO-led mission. The enemies of Afghanistan cannot be allowed to once again plunge this country into a state of repression and fear."

It is ISAF policy not to release the nationality of any casualty prior to the relevant national authority doing so.

Next of kin have been notified.
