The NATO-led Resolute Support Mission said the attack occurred at Camp Shaheen, and the troops were evacuated for medical treatment. No U.S. troops were killed in the attack.

The insider attack appeared to be a “green-on-blue" act which was carried out by an Afghan soldier, according to CNN.

Three U.S. soldiers were killed in another "green-on-blue" attack a week ago during a U.S.-Afghan military operation in the country’s Achin district. The Taliban claimed responsibility for last week's attack.
