UN mission in Libya strongly condemns Haftar’s Grad attacks on Mitiga Airport

The United Nations Support Mission (UNSMIL) has condemned in the strongest possible terms the attack on Tripoli’s Mitiga Airport by two grad missiles, which resulted in the injury of at least two civilians, and damage to the tarmac of the runway and a number of buildings including private and public property on Sunday.

UNSMIL said on Twitter that it reiterates that attacks against civilian targets, especially public facilities, represent a blatant violation of International Humanitarian Law.

UNSMIL added that repeated attacks against Mitiga Airport deprived two million residents in the capital of their only functioning airport.

Meanwhile, the spokesman for the Libyan Army under the command of the Government of National Accord (GNA) Mohammed Gununu described Khalifa Haftar and his militias as oathbreakers after they had carried out attacks on Abu Grein town with foreign aircraft cover.
