A drone air strike by eastern Libyan forces on the southern Libyan town of Murzuq has killed at least 43 people, a local official said on Monday.
At least seven fighters loyal to Libyan National Army (LNA) forces commanded by Khalifa Haftarwere killed overnight in a drone strike in southern Tripoli, a military source said.
Libya’s UN-recognised government said Saturday it feared forces led by strongman Khalifa Haftar were prepping a new “military escalation” in their months-long push to take Tripoli.
Libyan strongman Khalifa Haftar has ordered his forces to attack Turkish ships and interests, his spokesman said on Friday, accusing Turkey of backing his rivals in Libya’s conflict.
Libya’s military strongman Khalifa Haftar launched an offensive to seize the capital Tripoli, the seat of the internationally recognised government in April.
