Khalifa Haftar’s forces launched airstrikes for a second night on Mitiga Airport in Tripoli as fighting for the capital continues.

Civilian air traffic from Tripoli’s Mitiga airport has continued despite the two consecutive attacks.

Late on Thursday, Haftar’s drones, probably provided by his supporter the UAE, attacked the military section of the airport.

According to Haftar’s forces narrative, the airstrike was targeting a “Turkish plane.”

The eastern army reported a similar attack the previous night, but air traffic was not affected.

According to the Mitiga Airport administration, the airstrikes hit the area in the vicinity of the runway.
