Two American Service Members Killed in Afghanistan Fighting ISIS

Two American troops were killed in eastern Afghanistan on Wednesday evening, the Pentagon announced on Thursday. The troops were in the area fighting ISIS. A third service member was wounded.

Nothing else has been released about the identity of the service members, but next-of-kin has been notified. According to Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, the U.S. is still "gathering details" as to what happened.

When a Green Beret was killed in Afghanistan earlier this month, the U.S. responded by dropping the Mother of All Bombs to destroy cave systems.
