SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Taliban’s defense Ministry on Saturday announced that three of its members were killed as the result of a U.S.-manufactured helicopter crash during a training session in Kabul.

The Ministry said in a statement that at least three Afghan crew members were killed while onboard a U.S.-manufactured Black Hawk helicopter after the chopper crashed.

The incident took place during a training session overseen by Afghanistan’s defense ministry in the capital of Kabul. And five others were wounded as well.

The U.S. military under President Joe Biden’s administration fully withdrew from Afghanistan last year in mid-August, ending a two-decade of war that Biden called as “The longest war”.

Taliban has finally returned to power, occupying a massive number of military bases and outposts which previously used by the U.S. troops leaving war equipment including helicopters and armored vehicles.

It is not known how many U.S. choppers remain in the hands of the Taliban government.

Afghan air force pilots played a key role, alongside their U.S. counterparts, in the 20-year war against Taliban insurgents that ended with the departure of foreign troops in 2021.
