The General Directorate of the Central Security of Abu Salim district has denied the control of the so-called Dignity Operation forces of Tripoli International Airport, in response to the statements made by the spokesman of Khalif Haftar's self-styled army, Ahmed al-Mismari, who claimed taking over the airport located in the southern outskirts of the capital.

The Central Security Abu Salim confirmed yesterday that its forces are stationing in the area near the Airport Road bridge, adding that they are securing citizens crossing this area.

On the other hand, identical sources confirmed the withdrawal of Haftar's forces from Tripoli Airport to their previous positions in Souk Al-Khamis area.
