A US military drone has crashed in a countryside in Kuwait, says the Persian Gulf country’s defense ministry.
The unmanned plane came down late on Sunday in the Bir Mutla region close to the Ali al-Salem air base, which is currently being used by the US air force.
So far, no casualties have been reported in the incident.
Since its liberation from Iraq in 1990, Kuwait has been a close ally of the US and provides intelligence, funding, and airbases for a US-led coalition allegedly targeting Daesh Takfiri terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
