Fire Broke Out At Misrata Airport, As White House Calls For Peace In Libya

On August 3rd, a fire broke out at the Misrata International Airport, which is a Turkish base of operations in Libya.

It doesn’t appear to be a result of any attack by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s forces, but rather an incident. No significant damages and no injuries have been reported.

Separately, the Government of National Accord’s Sirte and Jufra operation commander Abdulhadi Drah said that all the troops, including Turkish armed forces, mercenaries and militants who came from Syria, are present and ready for the possible siege and takeover of Sirte.

On the side of the Libyan National Army, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s forces received a new batch of Jordanian RPG-32.

A video showed that a group of LNA soldiers, at Tariq bin Ziyad battalion base in Benghazi, which Haftar recently visited, were allegedly preparing to depart for Egypt.

The Libyan National Oil Corporation said that since the blockade of oil facilities began, Libya has lost $7.8 billion.

Finally, on the diplomatic front, the US appears to be becoming more active in rhetoric toward Libya, calling for a peaceful solution.

White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien said:

“The United States is deeply troubled by the escalating conflict in Libya. We strongly oppose foreign military involvement, including the use of mercenaries and private military contractors, by all sides.”
