Turkish F-16 warplane on Thursday night crashed in the Central Anatolian province of Nevsehir, some 260 kilometers (161 miles) southeast of capital Ankara.

The Turkish army’s General Staff said in a statement that the aircraft went down due to unknown reasons during a training flight.

A military “personnel” was killed, and search and rescue teams retrieved his body, the army said without further specification.

State media reported that medical teams and firefighters were dispatched to the rural area in Nevsehir’s Ovaoren village.

Earlier in the day, bombardment by Turkish warplanes killed four men in the Kurdistan Region.
