In the morning of October 6, 2020, Northrop F-5E Tiger fighter jet crashed in the region of Remada, Tataouine Province, southeastern Tunisia.
According to Tunisian media, the pilot was killed. No other casualties are reported, as the aircraft crashed into the desert.
“The cause of the crash remains, for the moment, unknown,” Major Mohamed Zakri, speaker of Tunissian Ministry of Defence, is quoted.
