The spokesman for Khalifa Haftar’s terrorist militias, Ahmed Al-Mismari, has announced that their militias would withdraw 3 kilometers away from all frontlines in south Tripoli, in a move that shows how devastating their defeat at Al-Watiya airbase and surrounding areas is.
Al-Mismari falsely claimed that their withdrawal had been prompted by the need to keep civilians safe in Ramadan and in the coming celebration of Eid Al-Fitr, which is a bit farfetched, knowing that the war has so far bypassed two eids and two Ramadans but Haftar’s militias never stopped fighting and killing civilians.
The blow of losing Al-Watiya airbase, Tiji and Badr towns in the surrounding area has left Haftar’s terrorist militias and their supporters completely cornered in their last vital position in Tarhouna, according to Burkan Al-Ghadab Operation.
In the meantime, on Tuesday night, Haftar’s militias tried to make up for their losses and withdrawal by retaliatory rocket attacks on Mitiga Airport in Tripoli, causing some more material damage to the airport.
A UN-appointed mission to Libya said on Monday there are “probable mass graves” yet to be investigated, possibly as many as 100, in Tarhouna where
