A soldier with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) was killed Thursday in Afghanistan's northern region, brining to two the number of military alliance fatalities since Wednesday, ISAF confirmed in a press release.
"An International Security Assistance Force service member died following an insurgent attack in northern Afghanistan today," the brief press release issued here said, Xinhua reported.
Hours earlier, ISAF in a separate statement said another soldier was killed in similar incident in Afghanistan's southern volatile region on Wednesday.
However, the statements did not reveal the nationalities of the victims, saying it is ISAF policy to defer casualty identification procedures to the relevant national authorities.
Troops mainly from U.S., Britain, Canada and Australia have been stationed in the southern region within the framework of ISAF to fight Taliban militants while German forces mostly have been deployed in northern region.
The latest casualties will bring to over 20 the number of NATO soldiers to be killed in Afghanistan since the beginning of this year.
A total of 711 NATO soldiers, with majority of them Americans, have been killed in 2010.
