Hard Landing Cripples US V-22 Osprey Helicopter in Syria, Two Injured

A US V-22 Osprey military aircraft has been destroyed after a hard landing in Syria, injuring two service members on Thursday.

The aircraft that was operating in support of the on-going Operation Inherent Resolve mission against ISIS forces suffered a “hard landing,” a defense official confirmed to USNI news on Friday.

“The two were evaluated for non-life threatening injuries and quickly transported to a medical treatment facility, where they were seen and released,” read a Friday release from U.S. Central Command.

“The other passengers and crew on the aircraft were uninjured, and no other casualties were reported on the ground,” the release states.

However, the report did not identify if the Osprey was downed by enemy action.
