LIBYA — After nearly a dozen commercial airliners were reported stolen in Libya after an attack on an airport last week by Islamist militants.
Now, Intelligence agencies are reporting the stolen airliners could be used for 9/11 style terrorist attacks. This comes before Islamic group (ISIS) had threatened to attack the U.S., London, Russia and the Arabian peninsula.
There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing, one official told The Washington Free Beacon this morning.
We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.
Intelligence analysts have suggested that these dozen stolen commercial airliners could be used for an attack on North Africa or even potentially the U.S mainland.
A senior State Department counter terrorism official declined to comment on reports of the stolen jetliners. A second State department official sought to downplay the reports. We can’t confirm that, he said.
Authorities are now trying to locate the missing airliners.
