A bomb exploded early Monday inside Misrata Air Defense Base. Sources say the bomb was planted and exploded under three useless aircraft.
The fire stretched to nearby in-use aircraft claiming one MIG 25 before firefighters managed to put off the fire. No casualties were reported in the explosion.
No one has claimed responsibility yet, but officials from the city pointed the finger at IS affiliates.
Hours after the explosion, the Air Defense of the General Staff carried out airstrikes in Sirte targeting Ouagadougou Conference Halls and the former internal security building.
