At least six missiles were fired by Khalifa Haftar’s Air Force jets at Misurata airbase in Libya on Saturday dawn.

According to local sources, Haftar’s warplanes hit the airbase in Misurata claiming to target Turkish military presence at the base.

This comes one day after forces under the command of the Government of National Accord (GNA) hit Al-Jufra airbase in central Libya, where it destroyed ammunition depots, and drones as well as a military cargo plane used to supply Haftar’s forces in southern Tripoli frontlines.

Airpower has forced its way on the scene over the last couple of weeks, with Haftar desperately striking Mitiga Airport more than four times over 15 days of time before striking Saturday Misurata airbase.
