Three US service members killed in Afghanistan blast

The Taliban claimed that attack.

Jasso, a member of the elite Rangers who was on his third deployment to Afghanistan, was accidentally shot by an Afghan partner force during a battle with al-Qaeda, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mission announced Tuesday.

A North Atlantic Treaty Organisation statement said they had been killed when an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated near Ghazni city in central Afghanistan.

The U.S. military said in a statement that Jasso and other U.S. and Afghan soldiers were involved in a close-quarters battle with "multiple barricaded al-Qaeda shooters".

It appeared to be the deadliest attack on American forces since June 2017, when an Afghan army soldier shot and killed three USA soldiers in an insider attack in the Achin district of the eastern Nangarhar province. An American contractor was also wounded, it said.

Inches of snow expected around southeast Michigan Monday
Though the arrival of the storm now is expected later than originally forecast, the intensity and duration remain on target. The bulk of the snow is expected to fall Sunday evening, which could also potentially affect the Monday morning commute.

Earlier this month, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said more than 28,000 Afghan police and soldiers had been killed since 2015.

Senior U.S. military officials have sought to reassure Afghan forces.

Tuesday's blast also follows a visit to Ghazni last week by the top USA commander in the country, Gen. Scott Miller, to discuss the security situation.

Combined, the deaths bring the number of US troops killed in combat in Afghanistan this year to 13.

The coalition first identified Jasso on Sunday, but had not previously acknowledged the possibility of friendly fire.

A separate counterterrorism mission known as Freedom's Sentinel also is underway, with U.S. Special Operations troops often partnering with Afghan commandos to target the Islamic State and, occasionally, al-Qaeda.

Nato's Resolute Support mission would not immediately release any details about the identity of the soldiers, whose deaths took the number of American service personnel to die in the war-torn country this year to 12.
