The warplanes of Operation Dignity in eastern Libya have conducted several airstrikes on Jufra airbase, targeting locations for the Benghazi Defence Brigades (BDB) in there.

According to official sources from the Benghazi Defence Brigades, the Khalifa Haftar-led air force carried out Wednesday morning two airstrikes on their locations and on the location of the Brigade 12 Infantry of the Government of National Accord’s Defence Ministry.

In line with the story, the House of Representatives in Tobruk said their forces “Operation Dignity of Haftar” conducted two airstrikes on BDB’s locations in Jufra airbase and on their residential areas in Hun town, near Jufra airbase.

Last Friday, BDB shot down a fighter helicopter for the Operation Dignity in Jufra as it was trying to target the BDB’s fighters, who were positioned in there.

Benghazi Defence Brigades is a coalition of different factions and fighters, mainly from Benghazi IDPs and other eastern and Misuratan forces.

The BDB control, along with GNA’s Defence Ministry forces, the Jufra airbase in central Libya in an attempt to recapture the oil terminals from the forces of Operation Dignity led by Haftar.
