US-led plane makes emergency landing

The Western military coalition forces announced in a statement on Sunday that “an International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) C-130 had a hard landing in Logar Province, Afghanistan today.”

The alliance did not offer further information concerning reasons behind the emergency landing.

Several aircraft belonging to the US-led military forces have been downed in recent months in the war-torn country, with Taliban militants claiming to have targeted them.

On April 9, two US-led soldiers died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar Province.

In March, six foreign troopers including five Americans were killed in two separate helicopter crashes in the country.

The United States invaded Afghanistan in 2001 under the pretext of combating terrorism. The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but insecurity continues to rise across the country despite the presence of thousands of US-led soldiers.
