Saudi Arabian military helicopter crashed yesterday while carrying out operational duties in the province of Marib in Yemen, killing at least 12 personnel.

Four officers and eight non-commissioned officers from the Saudi armed forces were reportedly killed when a Black Hawk helicopter went down, Saudi news agency SPA reported Tuesday.

The Saudi-led military coalition fighting in Yemen said that it was “one of the deadliest incidents for the kingdom's troops since the Yemen war began more than two years ago,” reported Reuters.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, the coalition added.
