Libya: Haftar militias target Mitiga airport in the capital Tripoli
Militias loyal to Libyan warlord Khalifa Haftar targeted Mitiga International Airport in the capital Tripoli on Thursday.
In a statement, the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) said Mitiga Airport – open to civilian use – was hit by Grad missiles.
The attack is a “new and repeated violation of the cease-fire and a continuation of the Haftar militias’ criminal record of targeting civilians,” the GNA said.
Following the attack, aviation was suspended at the airport, said the Facebook page of the GNA-led Burkan Al-Ghadab (Volcano of Rage) Operation.
