According to Bagram district governor Abdul Shakoor Quddusi, a auto bomber attacked an armoured vehicle carrying foreign forces close to a gate to the base.

The bomber struck as military personnel were conducting a security patrol near Bagram air base, a major air hub for foreign forces in Afghanistan, according Col. Dave Butler, a spokesman for the USA -led military command there.

In their claim of responsibility, the Taliban said they launched the attack and that one of their suicide bombers detonated his explosives-laden vehicle near the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation base.

A spokesperson for the Parwan governor said a suicide bomber had targeted a convoy of coalition forces at Bagram.

It said that the name of the service members killed in action are being withheld until 24 hours after notification of next of kin, in accordance with U.S. Department of Defense policy.

Last month, two United States service members were killed in Afghanistan during a military raid.

The statement further added that the wounded service members were evacuated and are receiving medical care.
