Military fighter jet crashed during operations
A military aircraft of the United States reportedly crashed during a training operation in the eastern Mediterranean, according to the US European Command (EUCOM) on Saturday. The statement from EUCOM did not provide specific details about the type or origin of the aircraft.
The crash occurred on the evening of November 10. Although the statement didn't disclose the fate of the crew, EUCOM clarified that the training sortie was solely for training purposes, with no indications of hostile activity. The cause of the mishap is currently under investigation.
