An Egyptian fighter jet crashed during exercises on Tuesday, killing its pilot, the armed forces said.

“During an armed forces exercise on January 14, 2020, a fighter plane crashed in one of the training areas, leading to the death of its pilot,” the military said in a statement on Facebook.

It said it was investigating the cause of the incident.

Another fighter jet crashed in Egypt last December but the pilot managed to eject and parachute to safety.

Egypt’s armed forces have several recently purchased American, Russia, and French jets.

Earlier on Tuesday, the military issued a slick video announcing exercises aimed at quelling militant activity in restive northern Sinai and securing Egypt’s borders with Libya and Sudan.
