A military helicopter belonging to the Air Force crashed in the Hammana area during a training flight, resulting in the deaths of two service members and injuring another, according to the Army Command, as reported on its official account on "X."

It has been learned that the helicopter went down in the nearby Chbaniyeh forest adjacent to Hammana, where the army has established a military cordon and restricted access to the crash site.

Preliminary information indicates that the military chopper's crash was due to poor visibility and fog.

In this context, Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati contacted the Army Commander, General Joseph Aoun, inquiring about the details of the incident that led to the helicopter crash. He offered his condolences to the fallen officers and wished a speedy recovery to the injured.
