The Libyan Air Force under the Government of National Accord carried out multiple drone attacks on Al Jufra Airbase in central Libya. The air base was under command of the Libyan National Army, a political faction that is in conflict with the internationally recognised Government of National Accord that was established late 2015.
Two Ilyushin Il-76 transport planes belonging to the Ukrainian airline Europe Air (UR-CMC and UR-CRP) were destroyed.
The captain of UR-CMC died in the attack as he reportedly tried to save the on board documents.
