The Taliban did not claim responsibility for the attack, but acknowledged it in a message on its official Telegram channel.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation said an investigation of the attack was underway.

That information could not be immediately verified by Afghan or North Atlantic Treaty Organisation officials.

The NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan, Resolute Support, said Saturday that the incident was under investigation and that the two wounded USA service members are being treated and are in stable condition.

The so-called "green-on-blue" attack is the latest in a series of incidents in which Afghan forces have turned their weapons on global troops with whom they are working. In that incident, a Romanian soldier was injured.

But a police officer said the shooting happened at the airport in Tarinkot, the capital of Uruzgan province, although they were unable to confirm this detail with any North Atlantic Treaty Organisation officials.

There are about 14,000 USA military personnel in Afghanistan, a lot of them serving as trainers and advisers with the Afghan military in their fight against the Taliban and ISIS.

To date this year, three other troops have been killed in hostile incidents in Afghanistan.

The attack comes a year after three U.S. special forces soldiers were shot dead by one of their Afghan colleagues. The U.S. invaded Afghanistan following the September 11 terror attacks by al-Qaida, which the Taliban government at the time had harbored. The last insider attack that resulted in a United States casualty occurred two months earlier, in June of previous year.
