Islamists resume assault on main Libya airport

July 20, 2014 10:07 A.M. (Updated: July 20, 2014 10:07 A.M.)
TRIPOLI (AFP) -- Islamist militia resumed their assault on Libya's main international airport on Sunday two days after an abortive truce with the rival former rebels that control it, a security official said.

"The airport was attacked this morning with mortar rounds, rockets and tank fire," airport security official Al-Jilani Al-Dahesh told AFP.

"It was the most intense bombardment so far."

Islamist militia first attacked the airport last Sunday, forcing a halt to all flights.

Their continued offensive has caused extensive damage to planes and airport infrastructure that aviation officials say will keep it closed for months.
