An Israeli Air Force Apache helicopter made an emergency landing in the West Bank due to a technical malfunction during a training flight, the military says.

Technical staff will arrive at the point shortly to service the attack helicopter and return it to operation, according to the air force.

Residents of the nearby Eli settlement offer food and drink to the pilots while they wait for the service team to arrive.
