Turkish military cargo plane crashes, kills three soldiers

Three Turkish soldiers died in the province of Isparta, in southwest Turkey, after a CASA-type military aircraft in which they were flying crashed, according to the statement issued by the Army Staff.

Isparta Governor Şehmus Günaydın has confirmed that two pilots and one technician were killed in the crash, which occurred in a rural area of Isparta's Yalvaç district.

It was not immediately clear what led to the crash.

In his words, "We are working to reach the wreck" of the plane. Contact with the plane was cut at around 12:50 p.m. and a rescue operation was started.

According to a statement by the Turkish army, the victims of the plane crash were all military personnel.

It should be recalled that In December 2017, a Turkish fighter jet also crashed close to an airport in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir.

The Ankara government is locked in a decades-long conflict with the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), waging an intensified aerial campaign against the group demanding Kurdish self-rule.

Three soldiers were killed when a Casa aircraft crashed during a training flight in western Turkey yesterday.
