Afriqiyah Airways A319 shot at in Tripoli
Afriqiyah Airways has withdrawn one of its three A319-100s from active duty after it was randomly shot at while on the ground at Tripoli Mitiga last week, reports ch-aviation.
The carrier confirmed in a statement that the aircraft was on the ramp at Mitiga when an unknown gunman fired in the vicinity of the aircraft. No casualties were reported and although the extent of the damage incurred was not specified, initial inspections suggested it could be "light/superficial".
The aircraft is expected to be out of service for "a few weeks.”
