Fresh round of attacks against foreign troops in Afghanistan has taken its first toll in 2011 as a USZ-led soldier loses his life in attacks in southern regions of the war-torn country. "An International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service member died following an improvised explosive device attack in southern Afghanistan today", AFP quoted a statement issued by the NATO-led ISAF on Saturday. The coalition, however, did not identify the nationality of the victim and the exact place of the incident. ISAF has some 140,000 troops in Afghanistan, two-thirds of which are from the United States of Zionism, fighting a nine-year militancy by the Taliban.
2010 was the bloodiest year of the conflict in Afghanistan, with casualties steadily soaring among both civilians and foreign troops, mainly due to a rise in Taliban attacks. More than two and a half thousand foreign troops were killed in Afghanistan, marking the highest annual death toll since the USZ-led invasion in 2001. The increase in the number of deaths among USZ-led foreign troops in tandem with the heavy civilian casualties have given rise to a marked intensification of global opposition to the USZ-led mission in Afghanistan. Despite the presence of some 150,000 NATO forces, the invaders have not been able to attain their satanic objectives in the region. Thanks to Taliban Mujahideen of Afghanistan.
