shot down by LNA in Al-Hira area, south of Tripoli?
Forces loyal to Libyan strongman General Khalifa Haftar have said they shot down a fighter jet over Tripoli and captured its European pilot.
The self-styled Libyan National Army told The Independent its forces took down a Mirage F1 French attack aircraft over a suburb of the capital.
The LNA is currently battling armed groups and militias affiliated with the United Nations-recognised government in Tripoli.
A LNA spokesperson, who asked to remain unnamed, said the pilot, a Portuguese national, survived and was now in its custody.
They also sent photos of the alleged crash site and the pilot, which cannot be independently verified.
