Italian Predator shot down in Libya

The site Africagate published on facebook this afternoon differents photos of a presumed Turhish drone shot down near city of Tarhuna, Libya.

LNA Western Military Zone’s Commander Maj-Gen Mabrouk Al-Ghazawi confirmed that earlier today “Turkish” UAV was shot down by air defenses in the north of Tarhouna city

But in these photos you can see a wings with Italian Air Force marking so this is not a Turkish drone but probably an Italian Air Force General Atomics MQ-9A Predator B.

-> UPDATE: Italian Ministry of Defence statement on Italian Air Force MQ-9A “Predator B” crash in Libya <-
