Seven killed in helicopter crash in Iraq were US service personnel

Army Brig. Gen. Jonathan P. Braga, the director of operations for the combined task force leading the fight against ISIS in western Iraq, said all seven service personnel aboard the HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter which crashed Thursday were killed. New York Mayer Bill de Blasio announced that they included two members of the New York Fire Department. The crash does not appear to be the “result of enemy activity,” said Gen. Braga, but it is under investigation.

    Looks like the work of Iran in Iraq since they promised to attack U.S. troops. However, the U.S. is keeping this a secret because it only wants to fight ISIS in Iraq and Syria while not touching Iran and its allies Hezbollah and Assad.
