been killed after a helicopter belonging to the US-led forces in
Afghanistan crashed into a house in the outskirts of the capital, Kabul,

The helicopter, which flew for the International Security Assistance
Force (ISAF), went down in the Bagrami district of Kabul at 10:10 a.m.
local time due to technical glitches, a senior police official said.



Turkey has confirmed the fatalities,

but there has been no immediate comment on the crash from the ISAF.
because isaf want to hide the truth by lying .


Turkey has more than 1,800 soldiers in Afghanistan, who are solely
tasked with patrols and do not participate in combat operations.



The Taliban have also said a helicopter manned by US-led foreign forces has crashed in northern Afghanistan.



Earlier in the week, a Taliban spokesman said another US-led
helicopter went down in the city of Qaisar in Faryab province on Sunday.
