The only functioning airport in Libya’s capital Tripoli closed on Wednesday after rockets were fired towards it, the airport said in a statement.
A plane coming from Tunis trying to land at Tripoli’s Mitiga airport had been diverted to Misrata, a city about 200km (125 miles) east of Tripoli, the airport said on its website.
Mitiga had only reopened on Jan. 14 after months of closure following repeated air strikes, part of a nine-month campaign by the Libyan National Army by led Khalifa Haftar to seize Tripoli from the UN- recognized Government of National Accord.
