The chairman of the Presidential Council (PC), Fayez Al-Sarraj, confirmed on Thursday, that retribution for those committing aggressions against Tripoli is on its way, adding that the retaliation would be a painful deterrent on the battlefield.

His statement came during telephone conversations with the Ambassadors of both Italy and Turkey, as they held discussions on the latest bombing campaign by Haftar’s militias on the Zawit Al-Dahmani area, in close proximity to the two ambassadors’ residence.

According to his Media Office, Al-Sarraj confirmed that the repeated attacks on residential neighborhoods amounted to nothing less than an act of cowardice, which Haftar’s forces began after suffering continuous humiliating defeats on the battlefield.
