    US Embassy: Joint investigation into the killing of an Iraqi pilot


     Baghdad / Range 

     BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The US Embassy in Iraq announced Thursday a joint investigation by Baghdad and Washington over the killing of an Iraqi pilot in the crash of an F-16 he was driving during a training mission in Arizona on Wednesday. 
    The Air Force Command announced last Wednesday that an Iraqi pilot was killed when his plane crashed. The second incident of its kind, as the Ministry of Defense announced in June 2015, the death of an Iraqi pilot after the crash of the F-16 during a night training trip conducted in the same state. 
    "The United States Mission in Iraq expresses deep condolences for the death of Major Noor al-Khazali during the flight training on the F-16s in Arizona," the US embassy said in a statement received by Al-Mada.
    "Khazali met with a strong desire to train hard on the most difficult program any pilot could commit to, and his goal was to return to Iraq to defend his country," the statement said. 
    "The United States is committed to continue training and equipping the Iraqi security forces to ensure that these forces can protect their country," the embassy said. "The United States and Iraq are working together to conduct a thorough investigation into this issue and the results will be announced as soon as they become available," she said. 
    In the same context, a member of the parliamentary security committee and the head of the Virtue bloc MP Ammar Tohme to conduct an investigation supervised by a high-level technical committee to detect the causes of the fall of the Iraqi plane F-16 in Arizona.
    MP Ammar Tohme said in a statement received by Al-Mada that "the unfortunate incident that was exposed to pilot pilot Nuri al-Khazali in a training plane in F-16 raises many doubts and surprises, especially that it is not the first incident, but preceded by a similar incident, For the killing of a pilot colonel as well. The professional evaluation reports indicate that both pilots are competent and highly experienced and have completed most of the training stages with superiority before they were killed by the crash of their pilots. " 
    "All these indicators call for opening an investigation supervised by a high-level technical committee to uncover the real reasons for these unfortunate and suspicious incidents and to prevent their recurrence in the future. The possibility of intentional or subversive causes in the two incidents is not far," he said.
    The Presidency of the House of Representatives has directed the Committee on Security and Defense parliamentary investigation of the repeated crash of F16 aircraft led by Iraqi pilots in the United States. The Committee called for coordination with the Ministry of Defense on the subject. 
    The head of the parliamentary security and defense committee, Zamili, said last Wednesday that he was surprised by the repetition of the incident. He called on the commander-in-chief of the armed forces to "form a joint committee of the parliamentary security and defense committee and the defense ministry to find out the real reasons for the recurrence of these incidents."
