Tripoli, 24 March 2014:
Another missile was fired at Tripoli International Airport yesterday afternoon, according to an Airport Authority . . .[restrict]official.
The report has been confirmed by aviation sources, who said the missile landed in an open space causing no damage.
The airport was closed on Friday after two missiles hit the runway and apron area. A number of airlines suspended services to Tripoli as a result. Tunisair since resumed flights but Lufthansa, Austrian and British Airways have not yet.
It is not known who is behind the attacks but there is speculation that the objective is to close the airport and force out the Zintanis who still largely control it, by making airlines transfer temporarily to Mitiga Airbase. [/restrict]
