Officials warn that ELEVEN missing airplanes seized by Islamist rebels in Libya could be used to carry out terrorist attack on 9/11 anniversary

  • Eleven planes went missing from Tripoli International Airport, after it was overtaken by an Islamic rebel group late last month
  • U.S. officials are reportedly warning that the planes could be used to carry out terrorist attacks for the anniversary of September 11  

U.S. officials fear Islamic militants have stolen nearly a dozen commercial planes in Libya which could be used to carry out 9/11-style terrorist attacks in the region.

Eleven commercial jets operated by two state-owned airlines went missing last month, after militant group Libyan Dawn overtook the international airport in the capital city of Tripoli. 

In the past two weeks, the U.S. government has been issuing warnings about the deteriorating state in Libya, drawing attention to the fact that the planes could be used in attacks to mark the anniversary of 9/11 later this month, sources who read the briefs told the Washington Free-Beacon.

‘There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing,’ one official told the Free-Beacon. ‘We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.’
