Two helicopters - for Khalifa Haftar's forces - collided on Sunday in military maneuvers in Mesous area in southeast Benghazi, killing two people and injuring others, identical sources said.

The sources said two Mi-8 helicopters collided and the crew members of one of them: Buzid Al-Barassi, and Milad Al-Asebi, were killed, while the other helicopter's crew members were wounded.

Last May, during a military parade for Haftar's forces, a MiG-21 flown by Jamal bin Amer, a prominent pro-Haftar pilot, crashed leading to the pilot's death.
