Libyan Government Air Force Attacks Haftar Army at Tripoli Airport

The situation in Libya has been tense since 4 April, when the Libyan National Army, led by Khalifa Haftar, started an offensive to rid Tripoli of militants. On their way to Tripoli, the LNA captured a number of settlements, while the GNA’s prime minister ordered the troops to use force if necessary.

The air force of Libya’s Government of National Accord (GNA) launched a series of attacks on the positions of the Libyan National Army (LNA) situated in Tripoli International Airport on Sunday, Al-Arabia reported.

The LNA units, under the command of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, seized a strategic site on April 6 and established full control over Tripoli International Airport, which has not been operating since 2014.
