Two Israeli helicopters sought an emergency landing due to technical problems in Romania Tuesday, according to the Romanian Ministry of Defense.

No casualties were reported in the incident, and the IDF has yet to make a statement.

The police said they received an emergency call from residents of nearby villages, and sent rescue forces to the area.

The emergency landing comes in the wake of last week's disaster in which an IAF Yasur helicopter carrying six Israeli servicemen and one Romanian observer crashed in central Romania during a training exercise, killing all aboard.
