On October 31, a U.S. military helicopter crashed in the northeastern Syrian governorate of al-Hasakah, according to a number of opposition sources.

Citing a special source, the Jesr Press said the helicopter fell near the town of al- Shaddadi in the southern countryside of the governorate. Other sources reported that the helicopter crashed inside a base of the U.S.-led coalition located in the vicinity of the town.

According to the news agency, the helicopter burned for three hours after crashing. It was apparently destroyed in the accident.

Meanwhile, the Orient News said the helicopter crashed and burned as a result of a “technical error.” No human losses have been reported, thus far.

The U.S.-led coalition and the Syrian Democratic Forces, which control the area where the alleged accident took place, are yet to comment on the issue.

Several AH-64 Apache and UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters are known to be deployed in the U.S.-led coalition base in al-Shaddadi. V-22 Osprey vertical takeoff and landing aircraft are also active in northeastern Syria.
