Forces loyal to Khalifa Haftar supported by Sudanese mercenaries and an air cover have violated the Libyan ceasefire agreement signed in Geneva over two months ago by attacking Tindi Camp, which is the headquarters of Sabha military zone of the Government of National Accord - the second party of the ceasefire agreement, a source from Ubari said.

The source said Haftar's forces had violated the ceasefire again in Ubari as they attempted to seize control of Sabha military zone headquarters headed by Ali Kanna, however; they failed as they were confronted by the zone forces obliging them to retreat to mountain areas surrounding the headquarters.

After the failure of Haftar forces' attack, led by a prominent Gaddafi-regime figure Mabrouk Sahban, they had contacted the headquarters asking them to withdraw and leave the GNA-commanded Sabha military zone to them, yet the demand was denied as GNA forces remained on alert for any attacks on their positions.

Neither the GNA nor the UNSMIL or any other stakeholders have issued statements about this clear violation of the ceasefire committed by Haftar's forces in southern Libya.
