Militants attacked the capitol airport in Tripoli on Sunday July 20, 2014. Up to 12 planes were damaged in the attack. The attack also included a direct hit of the control tower where casualties were reported.
Some Twitter users posted pictures of the attacks. One photo showed an Airbus A-330 that was appearantly damaged by an RPG. The attack also destroyed a Bombardier CRJ-900 Next Gen and a private jet. Later, photos were posted of another relatively new Airbus A-330 destroyed by rocket fire. A video of this same attack was released just hours ago on You Tube under the account Good Morning Libya. The Airbus A330-200s aircraft were delivered to new Afriquiyah in 2012 as part of an effort for Libya to begin a path to economic normalcy after the fall of the Gadaffi regime.
