Libya: Farnesina denies sending Canadair planes

The Farnesina has denied that Italy has decided to send 7 Canadair planes to Libya to fight the fires at the oil and gas facilities hit by rockets in the fighting over Tripoli’s airport. However, Italy continues to weigh up all the available options to provide assistance for Libya in light of its commitment to the country. It is doing so with due consideration for the enormous technical difficulties and the fact that the area concerned has been the scene of fighting by the militias since 13 July.


Our embassy is continuing to make every possible effort to protect the Italian community and interests in Libya.
