The spokesman of the Libyan Army under the Government of National Accord (GNA) Mohammed Gununu said he was surprised by the silence of the UNSMIL toward the violations of Khalifa Haftar's forces of the ceasefire.

Gununu said if the UNSMIL is interested in monitoring the implementation of the ceasefire, it should register the "crime and those who ordered it and committed it," saying the people of Ubari deserve justice.

"The killing of children and destroying houses are crimes added to Haftar’s militias in Tarhouna and Tripoli. The pretext of terrorism used by criminals to expand in cities has proven ineffective in the aggression on Tripoli. The terrorists are those who kill children, kidnap the innocent and destroy civilians' houses". Gununu said.

Pro-Haftar Tariq bin Ziyad Brigade Saturday using armored vehicles, destroying a number of houses and killing a woman and injuring a girl as it said it was "searching for wanted men" .

Haftar’s forces later issued a statement saying the attack on an Ubari neighborhood was to arrest seven terrorists from the Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).
