Libya gov't vows response after base hit by 'foreign air force'

Share the News



Libya’s UN-recognised government has condemned air raids on a recaptured air base in the west of the country.
It says a “foreign air force” carried out the attack.
The loss of the facility in May was among a string of recent defeats for renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar, pushing him out of large parts of western Libya.
Haftar launched an offensive to seize the capital, Tripoli, last year.
