[Global Network Military Reporter Fan Chen Yan] According to the US Defense Blog website reported on August 9, local time, a US Army MQ-1C Grey Eagle drone crashed near the Iraqi capital Baghdad. Subsequently, a spokesman for the US militarys operations in Iraq and Syria confirmed that the UAV made an unplanned landing near Baghdad on August 8 due to mechanical problems.

A U.S. military spokesman said the UAV did not crash, but landed safely and was successfully rescued by Iraqi security forces.

Further details of the incident have not been released or confirmed, but photos released by local media show that the MQ-1C drone crashed.
