Growing list of troop casualties this week

Two service members with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force were killed in a roadside bomb attack in southern Afghanistan on Friday. The deaths add to a growing list of troop casualties this week.

As per policy, the coalition did not release the nationalities of the service members who died.

At least 18 American troops have been killed in Afghanistan in the past week, along with eight coalition troops from the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and France, according to CNN records.

Meanwhile, two service members were wounded in a suicide attack Friday on a NATO convoy in Zabul province - also in southern Afghanistan, said Jhalam Jelali, the provincial police chief.

The Zabul attack killed two civilians and wounded 13 all together. In addition to the NATO troops, the injured also included two Afghan police officers, Jelali said.

      If Bush wouldn't have taken the troops out of Afghanistan for Iraq??? We wouldn't have any wars today...

        While Iraq probably wasn't the best idea... we didn't "take troops out of Afghanistan." We didn't have enough troops in there in the first place when the war could have been swiftly won (back in 2002-2003).

        he campaign to delegitimize Israel continues. Bloody knifes held by the thugs who attacked Israeli soldiers have been cropped out of photos. “Eyewitness” accounts of those claiming that the "peace activists" did not engage in violence continue to be broadcast despite the contradictory video evidence. And many in the media ignore the fact that Israel facilitates the delivery of true humanitarian goods into Gaza every day.

        Together we ARE making a difference. We have seen stories in the major media that do tell the truth. By spreading video footage, images and cold hard facts around the world via our website and our social media networks - the story is being told.
