Event

Local sources have reported up to 48 missiles impacted Tripoli's Mitiga International Airport (MJI) in an initial attack at approximately 08:00 (local time) on Friday, February 28. Following that, another seven projectiles reportedly hit the vicinity of the airport at around 10:45. Operations at MJI therefore remain suspended.

Similar attacks remain possible in the coming hours and days.

Context

The LNA launched an offensive on Tripoli on April 4, 2019, and prompted evacuations of foreigners from Tripoli on April 7, 2019. LNA and GNA airstrikes have been sporadically reported since April 8, 2019. The bulk of recent fighting has been concentrated in the southern suburbs of the capital.

Advice

Individuals with travel plans via MJI are advised to monitor the situation and contact their airline.

The security environment in Libya remains complex. Although travel is possible in some areas (with appropriate security protocols in place), other areas should be considered strictly off-limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
