The Free Beacon’s Bill Gurtz reports that Islamist militants in Libya have taken control of about a dozen airliners.
Islamist militias in Libya took control of nearly a dozen commercial jetliners last month, and western intelligence agencies recently issued a warning that the jets could be used in terrorist attacks across North Africa.
Intelligence reports of the stolen jetliners were distributed within the U.S. government over the past two weeks and included a warning that one or more of the aircraft could be used in an attack later this month on the date marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against New York and Washington, said U.S. officials familiar with the reports.
“There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing,” said one official. “We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.”
Tripoli airport and at least seven aircraft were reported damaged during fighting that began in July. Photos of the airport in the aftermath showed a number of damaged aircraft. The airport has been closed since mid-July.
The state-owned Libyan Airlines fleet until this summer included 14 passenger and cargo jetliners, including seven Airbus 320s, one Airbus 330, two French ATR-42 turboprop aircraft, and four Bombardier CJR-900s. Libyan state-owned Afriqiyah Airways fleet is made up of 13 aircraft, including three Airbus 319s, seven Airbus 320s, two Airbus 330s, and one Airbus 340.
The aircraft were reportedly taken in late August following the takeover of Tripoli International Airport, located about 20 miles south of the capital, by Libyan Dawn.
Al Jazeera television reported in late August that western intelligence reports had warned of terror threats to the region from 11 stolen commercial jets.
In response, Tunisia stopped flights from other Libyan airports at Tripoli, Sirte, and Misrata over concerns that jets from those airports could be on suicide missions.
Egypt’s government also halted flights to and from Libya.

Wow, what a coincidence…wasn’t long ago, shortly after the Libyan civil war that the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) told Barack Hussein Islama to go to war (unauthorized by Congress) to fight in, President Islama lifted the ban held against Libyans from learning how to fly in American flight schools, because he felt we were friends with Libya. Now, a coupe years after the ban was lifted, and with the MB having an actual Islamic, jihadist army, plus all their militia groups, there comes a day that 11 airliners from the Islamic jihadist takeover of the Tripoli airport in Libya. Wonder how many Libyans know how to fly? Wonder which on of the MB’s militia, terrorist groups are going to fly those planes into buildings in the US to help kill the “great satan” infidels, while showing their Islamically mandated terror on us, or maybe even hitting targets in Europe with those planes…the most concerting thought is that 11 planes were stolen from Tripoli, 1 was stolen from Malaysia (MH370, which was never found) the fact that ISIS (the MB army, not militia) is going to attack America (more than likely on 9/11), and the high possibility of the black plague being spread in America (with MB terrorist groups dabbling in chemical/biological warfare) and the ISIS laptop that was recovered that showed they will do massive American damage, and Barack Hussein Islama doesn’t have a plan besides golfing…America will more than likely be in a world of hurt next week.]
