    Claims of the Taliban Islamist movement about US military casualties in Afghanistan are not true, the NATO-led Resolute Support mission announced on Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On Tuesday, Afghan authorities dismissed claims of US casualties near Bagram.

    "Taliban claims of US casualties are false. There have been no US casualties in Afghanistan in the last 24 hours," the mission said.

    Afghanistan is in a state of political and social turmoil, with government forces fighting the continuing Taliban insurgency. The instability in the Asian country is supported by regular terror attacks and killings of civilians.
