Official sources confirmed that an aircraft crashed in Deh Yak district in the central province of Ghazni, south of Kabul, Afghanistan’s capital city, on Monday afternoon, APA reports citing TOLOnews.

Footage seen by TOLOnews, allegedly taken in Ghazni, shows markings on the plane similar to those of the US Air Force. 

The video also suggests that the aircraft is a Bombardier Global Express jet, which is used by the US military. 

No officials have confirmed information about ownership or type of aircraft. 

The Ministry of Defense said a convoy of Afghan Special Forces is on its way to Deh Yak district from Ghazni city, which is 25 kilometers west of the crash site. 

The Civil Aviation Authority in a statement posted on its Facebook page stated that no local, civilian planes crashed in Ghazni and that all flights were normal on Monday.
