Do217 shot down 29 November 1943 Benghazi?

Hi guys

In the SAAF history it mentions that RAF and SAAF Hurricanes engaged six Ju88s (III/LG1) and five Do217s (? 5/KG100) attempting to attack a convoy (GUS 23) off Benghazi, on 29 November 1943.

One Ju88 fell to RAF, while SAAF claimed one Ju88 and a probable. Two Ju88s of III/LG1 were lost. But the history goes on to state that one Do217 was also shot down by SAAF. Was one lost, or damaged?
