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.
