Washington Post: Two U.S. troops die battling Islamic State militants in eastern Afghanistan
Two U.S. service members were killed during operations against the Islamic State in eastern Afghanistan, the Pentagon said Thursday.
Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said the deaths occurred overnight in Afghanistan’s Nangahar province, where a small but virulent Islamic State cell poses a threat to Afghan and U.S. coalition forces.
It was the third time this year that a member of the U.S. military has died in combat in Afghanistan. On April 8, Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, 37, of Edgewood, Md., was killed by small-arms fire, also in Nangahar.
