US Army helicopter conducts emergency landing in Syria

-

On Tuesday, September 15, 2020, at approximately 0930, a coalition helicopter had to perform an emergency landing in Al-Hasakah Province, northern Syria. Emergency personnel and coalition troops responded to the crash site, and there were no injuries reported. The helicopter crew was recovered and extracted safely.

Operation Inherent Resolve spokesperson, Colonel Wayne Marotto said in a twitter statement that the helicopter emergency landing “incident was not the result of hostile activity”. There is no information on the type of helicopter aircraft, and the number of personnel due to security concerns.


Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) made an earlier claim this morning that the US Army helicopter crashed in northern Al-Hasakah Province, near the Iraq border.

US Army Soldiers are currently in the Syrian region to support and advise Kurdish Syrian Defense Forces (SDF). Turkey has also maintained a military presence in Syria since 2011 from the onset of the Syrian Civil War.
