Two new NATO deaths Thursday took the number of foreign soldiers killed in Afghanistan this year to 673

No details were given on the real nature of the event however reports have claimed nearly four ISAF troops slain in Afganistan on Saturday.

ISAF suffered four casualties when insurgent made a surprising attack in the southern part of the country on Saturday. International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) however gave little details on the nature of the event that resulted in losses.

According to ISAF officer two troops were killed instantly by insurgent attacks while two others died due to a bomb explosion. They further briefed that one of the soldiers died due to severe injuries.

National identity of one soldier was revealed by Afghan reporters. They claim that one of the slain troop was of British origin. Also they reported that another got wounded when in an uprising by two Afghan soldiers against the allied forces.

It looked like an uprising though some version of this incident detailed that one of the Afghan troops was later taken care of in retaliation by allied forces.

Security officer Muhammad Ismail Hotak claimed at least one U.S. Soldier lost his life in the attacks. ISAF on the other hand showed very feeble details in regard of any upcoming investigations.

Yet it isn't new to happen as many of same reported in the recent month where Afghan troops opened fire on U.S. Soldiers. Although there are reports that many of these attacks were taken by the Talibans as they claimed to have infiltrated deep in the Afghan forces by themselves.
