Benghazi's Benina Airport announced on Wednesday a one-day suspension of air traffic due to urgent maintenance of the runway.

Sources from the airport have leaked that the suspension of flights was due to a crack in the runway caused by the landing of Ilyushin cargo plane, coming from the UAE.

Haftar has been using Benina airport and another base near Marj to transport his militias, mercenaries, and weapons to the city of Tarhouna, via the airport of Bani Walid, to use them in his war on Tripoli.
