The fighters of the Derna Shura Council thwarted an offensive launched by the forces of Khalifa Haftar-led Dignity Operation's Omar Al-Mukhtar Operation Room on Daher Al-Hamar frontline in southern Derna.

"We have hit targets for Dignity Operation forces with a rocket and caused them a number of injuries, including one of the leaders of the offensive." A military source from the Derna Shura Council reported.

According to the source, Dignity Operation forces launched an attack using fifty vehicles and six tanks after military support had reached them in the last few days.

Qubbah Hospital in western Derna said it had received three injured fighters from Dignity Operation in the wake of the clashes that took place in Daher Al-Hamar.

A Dignity Operation's MIG23 air-attacked twice on Friday a number of positions in Fatayeh district in eastern Derna, leaving no noticeable human loss or material damage.
