The Libyan capital's international airport came under attack with dozens of rockets Monday, one of which hit a plane on the tarmac of the facility closed by fighting, security sources said.

"Dozens of rockets were fired at the airport," Al-Jilani al-Dahech, a security official at the scene, told AFP, while another source said an aircraft took a direct hit.
