“The Taliban’s claims that another plane crashed are false,” the military said.
A plane crashed in the Afghan province of Ghazni on Monday.
It was initially reported that the aircraft belonged to Ariana Afghan Airlines, but this information was not confirmed. According to another version, the plane was owned by the Afghan army.
Media later reported that Taliban officials claimed responsibility for the crash. They assumed they had destroyed a U.S. warplane.
The U.S. is known to use the Bombardier E-11A for electronic reconnaissance.
