The United States has stopped training Afghan forces due to the rising incidents of the insider attacks in Afghanistan.
US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta expressed deep concerns about the growing number of the insider attacks against the US-led forces, urging Afghan President Hamid Karzai to take necessary measures to curb the assaults.
Some analysts believe the maltreatment of Afghan military forces by American officers is the main reason behind the insider attacks in the war-ravaged country.
An Afghan soldier has killed two US-led troopers in an attack in Laghman Province in eastern Afghanistan.
A member of the Afghan National Army on Monday turned his weapon on the US-led soldiers in Laghman province in the latest instance of what is commonly referred to as ‘green-on-blue’ or ‘insider’ attacks.
The US-led NATO military alliance, however, has not commented on the incident yet and the nationalities of the slain soldiers remain unknown.
According to a count by the International Security Assistance Force for Afghanistan, the so-called green-on-blueattacks, in which Afghan soldiers turn their weapons against their foreign allies, have killed a total of 45 US-led foreign soldiers in the country this year, up from 35 deaths in 2011 overall.
