The Libyan National Army claims it had shot down a drone that had entered the airspace of Benghazi near al-Rajma.
First unconfirmed report identified the drone as an MQ-9. New pics and analysis of a few different angles of the crash site shows what appears to be four propeller blades, indicating that it could be a USAF MQ-9 ER.
