An image of a crashed unmanned aerial vehicle has been making the rounds on Facebook with claims that it shows a Sudanese drone recently shot down by the Ethiopian army as it attempted to enter Ethiopian airspace. However, this is false: the picture predates the war in Ethiopia. It was shared in 2019 in online reports and social media posts about a downed drone in Libya.
