Islamist fighters “liberated” Tripoli International Airport on August 23, 2014.
On Monday the Washington Free Beacon reported eleven commercial jetliners went missing after Islamist terrorists belonging to “The Masked Men Brigade” took control of the Tripoli airport in August. The Masked Men Brigade is linked to al Qaeda and Ansar al Sharia — the group behind the Benghazi terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2012.
The Islamists posted photos of the captured commercial jetliners after they took control of the Tripoli airport.
The Islamists climbed on top of the planes in Tripoli to celebrate their victory.
