Baytelmal: Uneasy calm descends on Abu Grein as GNA forces remain alerted for any Haftar militias attack

The commander of the Sirte-Jufra Operations Room Ibrahim Baytelmal has confirmed that uneasy calm is still prevailing on frontlines in the vicinity of Abu Grein.

Baytelmal told Libya Alahrar TV on Sunday that the Government of National Accord’s forces were on alert and ready to repel any attacks by Khalifa Haftar’s militias.

Baytelmal also reiterated that the Burkan Al-Ghadab Operation forces and all units under the command of the GNA are committed to the ceasefire.

In the meantime, the Sirte-Jufra Operations Room thwarted on Friday an attempt by Haftar’s militias to advance on the sea frontline in Abu Grein, pushing them back after hours-long clashes.

“Haftar’s militias fired several Grad rockets on our positions and that obliged us to respond to the source of the attack by rockets as well. No damage was reported.” Baytelmal told Alahrar TV.
