Defense officials said a medical helicopter was hit by mortar fire while on the ground but was able to take off. The incident occurred in Marjah in Helmand Province.

Additionally, two U.S. service members were wounded. No additional details have been offered.

"We can confirm a U.S. helicopter has landed in Marjah, Helmand Province, and is experiencing mechanical problems. It was not shot down," said Resolute Support Public Affairs Director U.S. Army Col. Michael Lawhorn.
