Three crewmembers on board a Syrian military plane were killed Sunday when the aircraft crashed near here due to a technical snag.

The plane was a Navajo small aircraft that belonged to a department linked to the Syrian military, SANA news agency quoting officials said. It was on a training flight.

The incident occurred at a sensitive time when the tension is high between Syria and its arch-rival Israel, which has carried out an air raid on Sep 6 deep into the Syrian territory.
