ONE DEAD, OTHERS INJURED IN U.S. SPECIAL OPS HELICOPTER CRASH IN IRAQ | Newsweek

An American special operations helicopter crashed early Monday morning in Iraq, killing one service member and injuring several others, Newsweek has learned.

It is unclear why the MH-60 Blackhawk went down, but U.S. military sources with knowledge of the crash said the helicopter was returning to base after conducting a partnered small-scale raid in an undisclosed region as apart of ongoing counterterrorism operations.

U.S. Army Colonel Sean Ryan, spokesman for Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve, confirmed that an aircraft crashed last night, and had no further information at this time. Officials said an investigation is already underway
