Libya: UN-recognized government downs UAE drone
UAE yet to comment on downing of UAV in western Libya, south of Al-Ajailat

By Walid Abdullah

TRIPOLI(AA) - Libya's UN-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) announced on Wednesday that it had downed a United Arab Emirates unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in the west of the country.

The Tripoli-based forces' air defense system succeeded in shooting down an Emirati plane south of Al-Ajailat, said Mohammed Kanunu the spokesman of the GNA-led Burkan Al-Ghadab Operation (Volcano of Rage) said on Facebook.

Abu Dhabi has yet to comment on the incident.

Since the ouster of late ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, two seats of power have emerged in Libya: warlord Haftar in eastern Libya, supported by Egypt and the UAE, and the GNA in Tripoli, which enjoys UN and international recognition.

Libya's legitimate government has been under attack by Haftar's forces since last April, and more than 1,000 people have been killed in the violence.
