“On behalf of ISAF, I relay our deep sympathy to the loved ones of this brave soldier,” said Brig. Gen. Richard Blanchette, a spokesman for the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF). “The soldier died fighting for the day when Afghans will be able to ensure their own security.”

The ISAF was formed under a U.N. mandate to bolster a secure environment and support the reconstruction of Afghanistan, according to the organization.

NATO took command of the ISAF in 2003. There are about 50,000 troops from 41 countries, according to the organization.
