The deputy minister of transportation Hisham Bushakiwat said Tripoli's Mitiga Airport will resume flights on December 12, saying to reporters that all undergoing repairing work has ended along with security preparations at the airport.

Two weeks ago, the airport's management announced a delay in resuming flights due to unfinished repairing work.

The UN envoy to Libya Ghassan Salame said last October that any more attacks on the civilian Mitiga Airport would amount to a war crime as the UNSMIL made sure there isn't military presence inside it.

Mitiga Airport has been attacked by airstrikes and shelling by Khalifa Haftar's forces over 20 times, one of which was days after Salame warned against targeting the airport.

Flights at Mitiga Airport were suspended on September 02 after repeated attacks by Haftar's forces.
