US troops are in Afghanistan on a dual mission of training, advising and assisting Afghan forces in their fight against the Taliban and conducting counterterrorism operations against groups such as al Qaeda and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Ahmadi told the Times over the phone that "usually we are using laser weapons and night visions on night attacks, and we definitely used night visions and laser weapons for that attack as well".

A vehicle-borne improvised explosive device left four USA soldiers wounded in Afghanistan.

At least 22 policemen and 45 militants were killed after Taliban attacked police checkpoints in Maywand district of Afghanistan's southern province of Kandahar overnight, provincial police spokesman said Tuesday.
