A US helicopter has crashed in Syria’s northeastern province Al-Hasakah, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported Tuesday, citing local sources.
According to the media outlet, the incident occurred in Tel Haddad village near Al-Ya’rubiyah. The type of the helicopter and the cause of the crash were not immediately known.
The site of the incident has been cordoned off by armored vehicles of the US forces.
Since 2014, the US-led coalition has been conducting operations in Syria without either a UN mandate or Damascus’s authorization.
The Syrian government has repeatedly denounced Washington’s military presence in the Middle Eastern country as illegal.
