According to the officials, the incident took place on Tuesday evening in Baraki Barak district.
The officials further added that the incident did not incur any casualties to the crew of the helicopter or security personnel.

According to the local government officials, the incident took place in Feroz Koh airport soon after the helicopter returned from a combat mission.
The officials further added that the helicopter made emergency landing due to technical issues and there were no casualties reported in the incident.
Provincial police chief Gen. Mustafa Mohseni said the helicopter had participated in a combat mission in the north of Feroz Koh district.
