NATO has denied ISIS’ claims it has assassinated a U.S military commander in Kabul.

A statement put out by the terror group’s Amaq news agency said it had killed the commander with an explosive device along with two Afghan officers.

But the NATO-led Resolute Support mission later said no-one was killed in the attack.

A statement said: “There is no truth to any claims that a U.S. military commander was killed in today’s Kabul explosion, several ANA members were wounded only.”

Faredoon Obiadi, chief of the police’s criminal investigations department, says an army officer is one of two people wounded.

The Taliban have also claimed responsibility for the attack, which is said to have taken place near the US embassy and the Afghanistan’s national court in Masoud Square.
