A Dignity Operation helicopter was shot down in east Libya on Sunday, Defend Benghazi Brigades (DBB) reported.

DBB official news outlet Boshra said the Mi-35 attack helicopter was shot down by a SA-7 shoulder-fired missile near Al-Magrun village, 70km west of Benghazi. 4 crew members including 2 Libyans and 2 French soldiers were killed, it added.

Al-Magrun was taken over by Defend Benghazi Brigades on Friday as they advance toward Benghazi.

Earlier this month, a Dignity Operation MiG-23 was in Benghazi's Ganfodah district.
