The Libyan air force loyal to renegade general Khalifa Haftar bombed Tripoli’s Mitiga airport on Sunday, targeting what said were positions of Islamist militias, Al Arabiya correspondent reported.

A low-flying fighter jet fired two missiles at Mitiga airport, which is in an eastern suburb of Tripoli and held by Fajr Libya, an anti-government Islamist militia coalition which controls the capital, AFP reported, quoting witnesses.

The security source confirmed the strike but was unable to say who was behind the attack.

Libya is caught up in a conflict between rival political factions, one of which has set up an alternative government after taking over the capital in fighting over the summer.
