Airport bombed by Libya’s Haftar not military, says UN

Tripoli: The United Nations mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has dismissed claims by strongman Khalifa Haftar that a government-controlled airport bombed by his forces in recent days housed military infrastructure.
On Thursday and Friday Haftar’s self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA) launched air strikes on Zuwara airport in western Libya, targeting what it said was a hangar “which houses Turkish drones and their ammunition”.
The Tripoli-based Government of National Accord -- recognised by the UN -- said a member of civil protection was wounded in Friday’s attack.
“After reviewing the airport’s facilities and all the adjacent buildings, the assessment mission was able to confirm that neither military assets nor military infrastructure were observed at Zuwara Airport,” UNSMIL statement said. (AFP)
