Zintan military council denied that the city's airport was used in the clashes in southern Libya between Ben Nayel forces and Third Force, saying the airport is not prepared for military warplanes as it is being used for civilian flights only.

Sources had earlier said that the warplanes that hit Third Force fighters in southern Libya took off from Zintan, while others said they took off from military platforms that are under Zintani forces.
