An unmanned aerial vehicle belonging to the US military has reportedly crashed in a remote mountainous area of Afghanistan’s Kabul Province.

The Interior Ministry official says the unmanned aircraft crashed in a remote mountainous area of Kabul province shortly after 5 p.m.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to talk to the media on the topic.

He says no casualties were caused by the drone crash.

An official at NATO’s Resolute Support mission, who also declined to be named, says the crash is being investigated.

Meanwhile, Taliban have claimed that the drone was shot down by them.

This comes as Taliban militants have increased violence against US-led forces in Afghanistan, targeting NATO helicopters and drones. The Taliban militants claim they have shot down several aircraft and NATO choppers in different parts of Afghanistan in recent years.
