KABUL—A U.S. service member was killed in action in Afghanistan on Monday, the U.S. military said in a statement.
It gave no further details and withheld the name of the service member until the next of kin were informed.
More than a dozen foreign force members have been killed in Afghanistan in 2019.
About 20,000 foreign troops, most of them American, are in Afghanistan as part of a U.S.-led NATO mission to train, assist and advise Afghan forces. Some U.S. forces carry out counter-terrorism operations against Islamist extremist groups.
