Italian Foreign Minister Luigi di Maio said that the Praeator drone, which crashed in Libya, was "not hit to our knowledge."

This came during di Maio's participation in a briefing session before the Parliament in Rome, today.

Di Maio explained, "There is no information in our possession indicating that the plane was shot down, it could just be a malfunction," noting that "all investigations are being conducted on the matter," according to the Italian Aki agency.

On November 20, the Italian Ministry of Defense announced the crash of an Air Force RQ One Predator dron, while carrying out a mission to support the "Safe Sea" operation concerned with monitoring Libyan coasts.
