Flights resume at Sebha international airport

Tripoli, Libya - Flights have resumed at the Sebha International Airport, following the disturbances which Libya's southern city witnessed in January, the local media reported Monday.


'Air traffic at the international airport of Sebha has resumed normally,' the report quoted spokesman of the local city council of Zentan and coordinator of the Military Council of Sebha Mahmoud Ramadan al-Hanouich as saying.

Al-Hanouich said several aircraft carrying relief items, food and drugs for the city have landed at the airport.

In January, Sebha, located 1,000 km south of the Libyan capital, Tripoli, witnessed three weeks of clashes between the military and the supporters of the former regime of Mouammar Khadafi.

The military has since re-taken control of the city as well as the military airbase of Tamahanat.
