Eastern Libya force strikes Misrata air college - source, witness

BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Forces of the eastern Libyan National Army (LNA) loyal to Khalifa Haftar struck Misrata’s air college early on Tuesday, a military source and resident said.

Misrata is a coastal city that lies to the west of the capital Tripoli and is regarded the main base of the Western Libya forces loyal to the internationally-recognised government. A Misrata resident said “massive explosions were heard across the city”.

A drone air strike on Monday by Haftar’s forces on the southern Libyan town of Murzuq has killed at least 43 people, a local official said.
