There are now no USA or North Atlantic Treaty Organisation fatalities as a result of the shooting, which took place at approximately 2 p.m local time, according to a spokesperson for Operation Resolute Support.

"An Afghan soldier shot and killed four American troops inside the base", said a statement by a military. "And the attacker was killed in exchange of fire", Qahar Aram, a spokesman of Corps 209 Shaheen, told Xinhua.

The Taliban in a statement did not say if they were directly behind the attack, only crediting a "patriotic Afghan soldier" for the assault.

The latest insider attack comes at a time of intensified violence and when the United States is actively considering sending more troops to Afghanistan.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation said an investigation into the incident has been launched.
