Five U.S. service members have died in a military aircraft crash over the Mediterranean Sea.

The incident occurred during a training operation, and the cause is currently under investigation.

“On the evening of November 10, a U.S. military aircraft conducting training operations in the eastern Mediterranean suffered a mishap and went down,” U.S. European Command stated. (Trending: Court Hands Down Crucial 2nd Amendment Ruling)

“Out of respect for the families affected, we will not release further information on the personnel involved at this time,” the statement added.

“The cause of the training incident is currently under investigation, however, we can definitively say that the aircraft sortie was purely related to training and there are no indications of hostile activity.”

President Biden and the First Lady expressed their condolences, emphasizing the dedication and sacrifice of service members.

“Our service members put their lives on the line for our country every day. They willingly take risks to keep the American people safe and secure. And their daily bravery and selflessness is an enduring testament to what is best in our nation,” Biden said.

“Jill and I are praying for the families and friends who have lost a precious loved one — a piece of their soul,” he added. “Our entire nation shares their grief. And, during this weekend when we pause to honor our nation’s veterans, we once more affirm the sacred obligation we bear to those who volunteer to serve our nation as well as their families, caregivers, and survivors. We pray for the families of all our fallen warriors today and every day.”

The crash happened amid heightened tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean, where the U.S. military has deployed carrier strike groups, and drone attacks have injured U.S. troops in Syria and Iraq.
