The twitter account Gerjon published a very interesting tweet about the visit of a German delegation (with the Minister of Foreign Affairs Maas ) in Tripoli on 15th August.
Two different German Air Force Transall C-160 (50+66 and 50+88) made the flight from Berlin with a stop in Sigonella AB, Sicily.
Before landing the aircraft deployed flares (an aerial infrared countermeasure used to counter an infrared homing surface-to-air missile).
Foreign Minister Heiko Maas issued the statement available here upon his arrival in Tripoli.
