Mitiga airport of Tripoli reopens

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – Mitiga international airport, the only one operating in Tripoli,  will resume its work starting today, according to the airport’s Facebook page.

“Instructions have been issued for opening the airspace of the international airport as of noon on Wednesday”, the airport announced.

“It is expected that the carriers will start their flights at the beginning of next week and we will try to provide you with any updates as soon as they reach us.”

Mitiga airport had been closed several times due to violent clashes between rival militias all funded by the proposed Government of National Accord, which resulted in the killing of more than 100 people, while hundreds of others were wounded, displaced, or missing.

On the other hand, the Libyan National Army spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed al-Massmari said that LNA has nothing to do with the ongoing clashes between the militias in Tripoli, and that the army continues to fully secure all the areas under its control such as the entire region of Cyrenaica east of Libya, and large parts of the south and the Libyan west.
