An aircraft belonging to Haftar's forces bombed Mitiga International Airport in Tripoli Yesterday evening, without causing any damage.

Authorities of the airport have announced the suspension of air traffic temporarily, before resuming flights later.

The airport of Mitiga has been a permanent target of hostilities by Haftar's militias, since the outbreak of Tripoli's war, despite being a civilian airport and is considered the only air link in Tripoli, which is inhabited by some 3 million people.
