The spokesman for the Sirte Protection and Security Force, Taha Hadid, has said that three of their force personnel have been killed and four others injured in an airstrike on southern Sirte.
Hadid told Libya Alahrar TV on Friday that Khalifa Haftar’s warplanes had targeted a routine patrol that was monitoring the movement of the remaining ISIS militants in the south of Sirte city.
Haftar’s warplanes and backup drones from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have more than once targeted military and civilian positions in Sirte, leaving a number of deaths and injuries as well as huge infrastructure destruction.
In the meantime, the commander of Ain Zara frontline in southern Tripoli, Yousif Al-Ameen, said Yarmouk, Al-Khalla, and Al-Khallatat frontlines all saw heavy clashes on Friday with both medium and heavy weapons.
Al-Ameen told Libya Alahrar that the forces under the command of the Government of National Accord had made some remarkable advances on several frontlines, causing Haftar’s forces losses in fighters and military vehicles as well as weaponry.
“Our forces targeted Haftar’s forces with heavy artillery shelling on Ain Zara, Wadi Al-Rabea and Al-Ramla frontlines in southern Tripoli as well.” He further explained.
