Haftar’s militias release 17 civilian prisoners

The spokesman for the Sirte-Jufra Operations Room, Abdelhadi Drah, said Saturday that 17 civilian prisoners from the western region were released by Khalifa Haftar’s militias,

Drah said that Haftar’s militias had been holding the prisoners based only on the fact that they were from western Libya when the latter were carrying out an offensive on western region in 2019.

He also said the 17 prisoners arrived at the 50km checkpoint in western Sirte under the supervision of the 5+5 Joint Military Commission, whose members hailed the step as a very vital boost to national reconciliation.

Drah said Haftar’s side carried out this release without a similar process on the Libyan Army’s side, adding that the released men arrived in Misrata to undergo medical tests and then go to their houses.
