Several Sources confirmed that approximately 9 Grad rockets have fallen on Mitiga International Airport on Monday night.

The attack happened just as an Afriqiyah Airways plane was about to take off. The same sources added that the shelling at the airport caused extreme panic amongst the employees and passengers.

Haftar’s militias had intensified their offensive on the airport and neighboring areas, with dozens of rocket attacks over the past two days, which has led to the death and injury of many civilians.
