The Libyan army spokesman, Colonel Mohamed Gunono, stressed they would continue their legitimate defence and to eliminate the threat wherever it exists.
Speaking at a press conference, Gunono said "We will go forward to trackdown the outlaw groups who undervalue the lives of Libyans throughout the country".
He added that they are awaiting an international investigation that would bring "the heinous genocide crime" carried out by Haftar's militias to the public's attention, including the crimes committed by the "Kaniyat" militia in Tarhuna.
The Libyan army spokesman also shed light on Haftar's constant violations saying it proves that he is not a man to be trusted. "Haftar's violations compel us never to trust him," he said, asserting their endorsement to the position of the Supreme Commander of the Libyan Army, Fayez al-Sarraj, that there is no place for Haftar in any future talks.
"Haftar has never been and will never be a partner for peace, he is leading a gang of bloodthirsty criminals," Gunono concluded.
