Earlier this year in March a similar insider attack wounded three United States soldiers at an Afghan military complex in Helmand province.
An Afghan commando killed three American troops and wounded another in eastern Nangarhar province on June 10, in an insider attack that was claimed by the Taliban.
According to the spokesman of the Afghan Ministry of Defense Mohammad Radmanish, joined by the AFP, the American soldiers "were visiting the base of Shahin when they were wounded in the attack".
United Kingdom finance minister Hammond seeks "pragmatic" Brexit
DUP leader Arlene Foster insisted that any deal with the Conservatives would not undermine the province's peace accords. Hammond, who has long-warned that a "hard Brexit" will affect the City, does have a point.
The attack took place in the Afghan National Army 209th Corps headquarters at Camp Shaheen, in the northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif.
Last month, armed militants stormed a private bank in Gardez, leaving at least six people, including three attackers, dead.
The Taliban in a statement did not say if they were directly behind the attack, only crediting a "patriotic Afghan soldier" for the assault.
Nevertheless, these attacks fueled a strong sense of mistrust between the coalition soldiers and the Afghan military.
It comes a week after an Afghan army commando shot dead three U.S. special forces soldiers in eastern Afghanistan.
Coalition countries, led by the U.S., are considering sending thousands more troops to Afghanistan to help advise and assist Afghan forces struggling against Taliban and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group.
