Mayor of Bani Walid, Salem Alaywan has categorically denied the media talk regarding his visit to Rajma HQ near Benghazi and his meeting with Khalifa Haftar.

Alaywan said in an official statement published on Bani Walid Municipality's Facebook page, "The people who appeared in the photos with Haftar only represent themselves, and do not bear any official post inside the Municipality of Bani Walid".

Pro-Haftar media outlets have claimed that Haftar had received a delegation of dignitaries from the tribe of Warfalla, including the Mayor of Bani Walid, and representatives of various social components of the city at his HQ in Rajma.
