A USA service member has been killed during operations in Afghanistan's eastern province of Logar on Saturday, according to the U.S. military.

Six other USA crew members were injured in the crash, Resolute Support said in a statement. US and allied forces are battling a resurgent Taliban as well as an Islamic State affiliate in Afghanistan, which is still gripped by unrest 16 years after the USA -led invasion.

"Despite this tragic event, we remain steadfast in our commitment to the Afghan people and to support them in our mutual fight against terrorism", Commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan Gen. John Nicholson said.

The NATO Resolute Support mission reported that the servicemen died as a result of wounds sustained during operations in Logar province. "Despite this tragic event, we remain steadfast in our commitment to the Afghan people and to support them in our mutual fight against terrorism". The US Department of Defense confirmed that on October 27, a helicopter crashed in Logar Province, killing one US officer and injuring six more.
