Libyan Army spokesman: Our forces responded to source of fire in southern Tripoli

The Spokesman for Libya’s Army Mohammed Gununu said the forces under the command of the Government of National Accord (GNA) targeted the source of fire of Khalifa Haftar’s militias on Saturday after they had tried to breach the ceasefire in Al-Gayo crossroads.

Gununu added on Saturday that their forces had destroyed a number of military vehicles of Haftar’s militias after targeting with precision one of their positions, which is backed by mercenaries.

Haftar’s militias had been breaching the ceasefire since it started on January 12, leading to many escalations such as the killing of one person on the first day of the ceasefire, then opening fire on people returning to their houses, let alone the Wednesday attack on Mitiga Airport in Tripoli with 11 Grad rockets in less than 48 hours and the threats by Haftar’s spokesman to destroy civilian planes if they land in or take off from Mitiga.
