Libya: Haftar’s forces strike Murzuq in southern Libya
The member of Murzuq municipality Mohammed Omar said a warplane for Khalifa Haftar’s forces struck Saturday afternoon Murzuq in southern Libya twice.
Omar told the German news agency that between six and eight people had been killed in airstrikes on eastern part of the town - Anti-Desertification Project - near the meteorology building where many houses are located.
“Murzuch is under the command of the Presidential Council’s government in Tripoli. It has been hit by four airstrikes in the last two weeks alone, without casualties.” Omar added.
Sources in Al-Jufra said Haftar’s forces were preparing a convoy of armed forces heading to Murzuq after Presidential Council’s South Protection Force had seized the town following deadly clashes.
