USA military aircraft crash in Syria injures two”

Two American service members sustained minor injuries as a result of a US military aircraft crash at a coalition base in Syria on September 29, according to U.S.

It is unclear yet what caused the incident.

The persons suffered non-life threatening injuries and were sent to a hospital where they were evaluated and later released, the coalition added.

The statement also said that two USA service members were injured in the landing but added that the injuries were "non-life threatening" and said that they have both been released from a medical treatment facility.

Officials declined to identify the injured servicemembers' military branch or where in Syria the crash occurred. Military operations against ISIS are ongoing in east Syria, primarily along the Euphrates River from Raqqa to the country's border with Iraq. It is the latest in a string of military mishaps that include recent incidents, some deadly, among all four Defense Department services in training and combat operations.

Three U.S. service members - a Marine aviator and an infantryman - were killed on August 5 when their MV-22B Osprey crashed off Australia's eastern coast. In January, during a counter-terrorism operation in Yemen, a V-22 Osprey was damaged and had to be destroyed in an air strike.
