On May 7, the Libyan National Army (LNA) shot down a Mirage F.1 fighter jet of forces loyal to the Government of National Accord (GNA) south of the city of Tripoli, the LNA said.
According to the existing data, the jet crashed near Hirah. The downed warplane was reportedly based in Misrata’s airbase. Misrata is the stronghold of militias supporting the GNA.
The LNA also captured the pilot of the downed warplane. The army said that he is a Portuguese origin. This still has to be confirmed.
