Libyan Air Force under the Government of National Accord carried out multiple drone attacks on Al-Jufra Airbase in central Libya in the early hours of Friday, destroying an ammunition depot and an Ilyushin Il-76 transport aircraft for warlord Khalifa Haftar’s armed groups.
In a statement, the Joint Operations Room of the Western Military Zone said an air defence system was also destroyed in the air raids.
Media sources close to Haftar’s command confirmed the drone attacks without giving details about the damage and casualties.
Local residents in Hun and Waddan towns said they heard several loud explosions at Al-Jufra Airbase at around 4:00 am.
The Libyan Air Force renewed the drone attacks on Friday morning.
