Two U.S. service members were killed in Afghanistan on Friday while conducting an operation, the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said in a statement. 

It gave no further details and withheld the names of the service members until next of kin were informed. 

The U.S. military’s mission is focused on guiding and aiding Afghan forces battling the Taliban, who were ousted from power in 2001. 

The latest deaths bring the tally of U.S. service members’ deaths in Afghanistan to at least four in 2019, and a total of at least 65 U.S. military deaths since January 2015, according to U.S. government and NATO reports.
