Satellite Images Confirm: GNA Airstrike Eliminated LNA Warplane In June

Support SouthFront

On July 26, Oded Berkowitz, an Israeli intelligence analyst, released new satellite images revealing that an airstrike by the Government of National Accord (LNA) air force destroyed a warplane of the Libyan Air Force (LAF) last month.

The images, which were taken on June 13 and June 25, show how a GNA airstrike destroyed a Su-22 warplane of the LAF in al-Watyah airbase in northwestern Libya.

The GNA air force announced the destruction of the warplane in a short press release on June 19. These claims were met with much suspicion back then, as al-Watyah is not one of the LAF’s main airbases.

“The air eagles of the GNA destroyed a Sukhoi-type warplane at Al Watya Air Base,” the press release reads.

A recent report revealed that the GNA air force destroyed two Ukrainian IL-76D cargo planes in the Al-Jufra airbase in July.

The high-precision of the GNA’s airstrikes suggest that they may have been carried out by Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 combat drones, which are known to be operating over Libya.

Could be fake news, more proof required than a couple of photos with a smudge.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
