A U.S. Air Force pilot was killed Sunday when an F-16 fighter jet crashed in the Middle East, according to a statement released by U.S. Central Command.

The pilot, who was not identified, died when the jet crashed in a non-combat mission as it flew back to a military base. The crash did not occur in Iraq or Syria, according to Central Command. For several months the United States has launched airstrikes in both countries to combat Islamic State terrorists.

The cause of the incident remains under investigation.
