The Okinawa Prefectural Assembly on Monday unanimously adopted a resolution protesting last week’s nonfatal crash-landing of a U.S. military helicopter and demanding that the use of helipads be halted in the training area it strayed from.

The resolution said the U.S. has increased training exercises over private land since six helipads were built in the U.S. Northern Training Area. Some of the helipads are close to residential areas.
