The Libyan Army defense forces located in Misurata shot down overnight a drone for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) used by Khalifa Haftar’s forces to strike the city’s Air College and airport, local sources have reported. 

The senior commander at Burkan Al-Ghadab Operation under the command of Government of National Accord (GNA) Al-Taher bin Ghariba said the ground-to-air missiles they fired shot a UAE drone down above the city of Misurata nearby its Air College.

Many pro-Haftar media outlets and activists confirmed the downing of the drone, but never mentioned it was a UAE drone.

The drone has struck Misurata few times before since the start of Tripoli offensive by Haftar’s forces.

This is the second drone the GNA forces have shot down over Misurata after the Chinese Wing Loong of last month.
