A spokesperson for the Egyptian Army said that a fighter jet crashed on a ‘training area’. An Al Quwwat Al Jawwiya Il Misriya (EAF, Egypt Air Force) F-16 crashed in Egypt’s North Sinai on 14 January 2020.

The F-16 came down near the town of Rafah. The Egyptian government confirmed that the sole pilot was killed in the crash. Authorities report the Fighting Falcon was performing a training flight. Further details remain unknown.

Elements of ISIS, active reported to be in the northern part of the Sinai, claims it shot down the F-16 with an SA-6 missile. This, however, is unconfirmed so far. ISIS used its social media channels to broadcast its claim.

The Egyptian military has said a pilot name Hisham Hasani was killed when an air force fighter jet crashed during training on Tuesday, according to a statement.

The jet crashed during training at a practice area, the statement said. The cause of the crash is being investigated.
