The mayor of Tobruk, Faraj Bualkhatbeya, called on the Speaker of Parliament Aquila Saleh, to urgently open the Tobruk Airport as soon as possible.

According to the Tobruk Municipal Council, this demand came during a telephone conversation as an urgent matter of humanitarian, health and social conditions issue which directly affects local citizens and to avoid escalation of the situation, due to the continued closure of the airport.

The mayor also expressed his full support for the statements issued by the director of Tobruk Airport regarding the closure of the airport to official delegates, who were granted exemption from the closure, if the airport is not opened for flights by next week.

The airports of eastern Libya have been closed by militia groups affiliated with the Deputy Minister of Interior for Technical Affairs, Farij Qaiem, to prevent eastern delegations from visiting Tripoli to meet Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah.
