A Special Forces Operational Detachment Alpha (ODA) was ambushed in Afghanistan, resulting in multiple casualties.

It appears that at least two American commandos have been killed and several wounded — unconfirmed reports put the number to four Wounded in Action (WIA). Emerging reports indicate that the SF team was ambushed by its partner Afghan National Army (ANA) force (a Green-on-Blue incident). Sources familiar with the incident told SOFREP that it was a 3rd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) ODA.
