An American Special Forces soldier was killed in Afghanistan Thursday as violence continues throughout the region amid ongoing peace negotiations between U.S. and Taliban officials.

A statement released Friday by officials with the NATO Resolute Support mission did not disclose any details on how the Special Forces soldier was killed. The Defense Department and Newsweek are withholding the name of the U.S. service member until 24 hours after next of kin are notified.

Pentagon sources told Newsweek the soldier was killed in Zabul Province, located in the south of the country, bordering the province of Kandahar to the west.
