Airlift to Evacuate Egyptian Nationals From Libya

Egyptian airplanes will from Thursday at midnight start the evacuation of the country’s nationals flying Libya from the Djerba-Zarzis airport to Egyptian airports, announced the Ministry of Transport.

Communication officer at the Ministry Mohamed Ali Aboudi said the first flight will carry over 100 people, pending the evacuation of the remaining Egyptians, whose number has not been determined yet.

This operation comes after 21 Egyptians were beheaded by “Daesh” in Libya and the air strikes conducted by Egypt on some targets in this country in response to these killings.

These events pushed thousand of Egyptians to leave this country.
