As per the Authority’s official account, the first stage will include a detailed survey of the airport grounds, as well as the identification and clearance of bombs, mines, and war remains by the Ministry of Defense’s Military Engineering Department.

On a visit to the site on Saturday, Minister of Communications Mohamed Al-Shahoubi and Chief of General Staff Mohamed Al-Haddad, along with a number of other officials, declared a project to survey and clear Tripoli International Airport of mines and war remnants after the blessed Eid Al-Fitr holiday.
