An Afghan soldier shot and killed two Nato soldiers in eastern Nangarhar province on Thursday, a source told TOLOnews.
"An Afghan soldier turned his weapon against foreign troops in the Khogyani district of Nangahar province today. He opened fire on Nato troops, killing two and wounding two others," the source told TOLOnews on the condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile, an Isaf statement confirmed that a individual wearing an Afghan army uniform opened fire on Nato troops, killing two soldiers.
Isaf did not provide more details about the incident.
The shooting is the latest in a rising number of attacks on Nato troops by Afghan police and soldiers, or militants dressed in their uniforms.
On Monday, a gunman in an Afghan police uniform killed two Albanian soldiers in southern Afghanistan.
The Albanians' deaths were the first since the country started its Afghan mission. Albania has a contingent of 120 soldiers in the country.
Last month, an Afghan soldier shot and killed four French troops and wounded 16 others on a base in eastern Kapisa province.
After the attack, France suspended its training programme and threatened to withdraw its forces a year ahead Nato's schedule.
The death brings the number of foreign troops who have died this year in Afghanistan to 54, according to icasualties.org, a website that keeps a tally of foreign soldiers' deaths in the country.
