(MISURATA, Libya) -- Moammar Gadhafi has violated the no-fly zone imposed over Libya, ABC News has learned.
A Libyan warplane -- a G-2 Galeb -- was reported flying over Misurata. The aircraft was promptly taken down after French fighter jets shot at it.
This incident is believed to be the first time a Libyan warplane was sent up and the first time one was shot down.
Earlier this month, the United Nations authorized the imposition of the no-fly zone in Libya, which extends west from Benghazi.
