He said the move was taken by the Interior Ministry after all health protocols were observed at the terminal.

The private Libya Alahrar TV said the Dehiba-Wazen crossing was also reopened.

On Friday, Tunisia said that commercial flights will resume with Libya as of Nov. 16 after an 8-month suspension.
