Haftar’s LNA says includes Mitiga Airport of Tripoli in no-fly zone
The Libyan National Army (LNA), headed by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, announced the expansion of the no-fly-zone, which now includes the Mitiga Airport of Tripoli, LNA spokesman Ahmed Mismari said, APA reports citing local media.
“The LNA General Staff declared the expansion of the previously established no-fly zone in Tripoli, which includes the airport of Mitiga starting from 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday”, Mismari said in a statement, posted on his Facebook page.
The LNA called on airlines to respect the boundaries of the no-fly zone and not to put their planes “at the risk of destruction”.
On 12 December, Haftar announced the beginning of a decisive battle in his campaign to seize Tripoli.
In early April, the LNA declared a no-fly zone over the western parts of Libya, which are governed by the UN-backed Government of National Accord, after the start of an offensive on Tripoli.
Libya has been in a state of a civil war since its longtime leader, Muammar Gaddafi, was ousted and killed in 2011. Since then, political power in the country has been split between two rival governments: the Council of Deputies based in Tobruk and the Tripoli-based General National Congress. Following the signing of a UN-brokered Libyan Political Agreement in December 2015, a Government of National Accord has been established in the county and started its work in late March 2016.
