Coalition Forces’ Drone Crashes in Helmand

LASHKARGAH – An unmanned aerial vehicle – drone – of coalition forces has crashed in southern Helmand province of Afghanistan.
According to informed military sources, the drone crashed earlier on Wednesday after experiencing engine failure.
“One of our unmanned aircraft experienced engine failure and crashed in Helmand province today. We are working to recover it,” the sources said.
Coalition forces have been using drones to effectively target militant sanctuaries in different parts of the country, as they are difficult to trace.
Unmanned aircraft use has also increased because of the increase in number of airstrikes carried out by Resolute Support mission and Afghan security forces.
