While on a reconnaissance mission near the Burkina Faso border, a military chopper crashed in the northern Ivory Coast.
According to the defence ministry, all five members of the crew perished.
The ministry said an investigation has been launched to investigate the reason for the crash.
The army in the northern Ivory Coast has been targeted by suspected jihadists on multiple occasions, particularly near the Burkina Faso border.
Two troops and a gendarme perished in the Togolokaye region last June after colliding with an explosive device.
In June 2020, fourteen soldiers were murdered in an attack in Kafolo, and three more soldiers were slain in the same area last March.
