The Libyan Army's Volcano of Rage Operation said its warplanes carried out airstrikes on Khalifa Haftar's forces in Al-Hira and Bushiba in northern Gharyan to cut off Haftar's forces supply line from the city, let alone the airstrikes on Qasir Benghashir and around Tripoli International Airport.
Haftar's forces tried to advance on Saturday on Ramla and Tripoli International Airport frontlines under drones' cover of Haftar's forces, but they were held back by heavy artillery shelling by Libyan Army forces.
The Head of the UNSMIL, Ghassan Salame, has called for an urgent humanitarian truce and for more support for the IDPs in Tripoli.
Salame's call came in a visit he paid Saturday to the workplaces of UN agencies that are responding to humanitarian needs of the IDPs in Tripoli.
Salame visited Abu Der Al-Ghafari school that is hosting IDPs from the clashes' zones in southern Libya between Libyan Army forces under Presidential Council's government command and Khalifa Haftar's forces.
The Libyan Presidential Council (PC) issued Friday a statement condemning the airstrikes by Khalifa Haftar's Air Force on Tripoli vital facilities, saying the strikes have become systematically intentional.
The PC said Haftar's airstrikes hit two field hospitals in Al-Swani and Ain Zara in southern Tripoli, causing injuries among medical staffers and civilians.
Gangsters, thugs, Madkhali extremists, tribal militias and Gaddafi militants have joined together to fight within the ranks of warlord Khalifa Haftar’s armed groups in south Tripoli battlefields.
Lured with millions of dinars, the coalition of gangs call themselves “Libyan National Army”, abbreviated as LNA, despite claims by Haftar and his propaganda outlets that their army is made up of regular soldiers.
