Just west of Tripoli (Libya) International Airport runway 9R/27L. It was an Airbus 330 belonging to Afriqiyah airlines which had taken off from Johannesburg, and it crashed the day this image was taken, May 12, 2010, killing all 105 passengers aboard.

Crash of Flight 771 – Afriqya Airways Qaser Ben Ghashir, Libya
Comment by Sasha Smith | May 14, 2011
Afriqiyah Airways Flight 771, Tripoli, Lybia. Almost exactly one year ago.
Man, these are getting hard, just random trials lead me to this.
Debris path of flight 771, West of of runway 09 Tripoli International Airport. I would have found this sooner, but I eliminated Umm Aitiquah airport, closer to downtown Tripoli as
the answer and found every Wikipedia air crash with one survivor before doubling back.
