Afriqiyah Airways has underscored that the video showing Syrian fighters on their way to Libya aboard one of its planes is totally untrue.

The company said in a statement yesterday that the video clip was fabricated at other airports, not of the western region.

It accused those behind the fabrication of aiming to undermine the company's reputation, stressing that it will prosecute all those involved in "weaving this plot" before the judiciary, according to the statement.
