One civilian has been killed and others injured as Khalifa Haftar's forces have fired a rocket on the densely populated area of Gergaresh in Tripoli, Health Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

Haftar's rockets fell also on Abu Salim and Mazawgha areas in Tripoli, leaving two civilians injured - one child - according to the mayor of Abu Salim.

The attacks also targeted Awlad Dayab area near Mitiga Airport in Tripoli, causing material damage and panic among the residents.

Meanwhile, a rocket fired by Haftar's forces on Ain Zara exploded near a bakery where many people were queuing for bread. The rocket went off 200 meters away from the bakery, causing no casualties.

The media office of Volcano of Rage Operation said two military cargo planes arrived in the Emirati Al-Khadim airbase in eastern Libyan Marj town coming from Abu Dhabi's Sweihan airbase.

The media office said the two tracked planes on Tuesday come after three similar ones coming two days ago from Abu Dhabi to Marj eastern Libya.
