On Wednesday (Jan 22), Tripoli's Mitiga Airport reopened and resumed flights, after having been shut down earlier that day due to shelling and rocket attacks. The attacks, attributed to Haftar's LNA forces, were yet another in a string of violations of the shaky ceasefire agreed upon in Moscow last week and backed by the international summit in Berlin on Sunday.
There were no reports of damage or casualties as a result of the rocket fire. Haftar and the LNA forces have been trying to take Tripoli since beginning a renewed offensive in April of 2019.
LNA sources said they were targeting "Turkish drones" being stored and launched from within Mitiga airport. The GNA denied this. This has not been the first time Mitiga airport has come under LNA fire and had to shut down, for similar reasons.
Despite the renewed efforts at a ceasefire, the Turkish-GNA military pact could see an increased effort by Turkey to send arms and troops, including Syrian militias, to assist the GNA, which could invite further LNA attacks on Tripoli's only functioning airport.
