Mechanical failure was blamed for the jet crash
A fighter jet belonging to the Egyptian air force crashed in the Nile Delta governorate of Daqahliya on Wednesday, with no deaths reported, according to a military statement.
Military spokesman Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said the jet’s pilot was transferred to a hospital and is in a stable condition.
A mechanical failure in the fighter jet caused it to crash, Ali said.
