Haftar's militias suffered Monday heavy losses after a failed advance on the Airport Road in their attempt to infiltrate into the capital.

More than 10 of Haftar's militias were killed and 12 armed vehicles were destroyed in clashes against the Libyan Army forces, according to the Spokesman for the Libyan Army, Brigadier Mohammed Ganounou.

Ganounou explained in a press conference that an infantry force of Haftar's militias tried to advance in the Airport Road, supported by four Emarati armored vehicles.

"Our forces dealt with them and made them suffer heavy losses," he explained.
