Khalifa Haftar threatened what he described as militias positioned in Tripoli asking them to get out of the capital before his forces arrive, adding that if his forces arrived and faced them, it would be their demise.

Speaking on the phone on Al-Hadath TV, he asked his supporters in Tripoli to keep on protesting to back up the army and police.

Meanwhile the western military zone command of Haftar's forces said what happened on Friday shows the awareness of the people in Tripoli, saying it will act tough and in the right time to regain the capital's control back into the country's command.
