Twenty-two American service members were killed in Afghanistan in 2019, the highest number since NATO combat operations in the country ended at the end of 2014.
Since then, the United States has continued a separate counterterrorism mission.
All but four of the military fatalities in Afghanistan in 2019 were combat-related.
The deaths came as Washington held direct peace talks with the Taliban aimed at the ending the war, the U.S.’s longest, throughout most of the year. The talks are ongoing.
Roughly 13,000 American troops were deployed to Afghanistan at the start of 2020.
