BENGHAZI: At least seven fighters loyal to Libyan National Army (LNA) forces commanded by Khalifa Haftar were killed overnight in a drone strike in southern Tripoli, a military source said.
Eastern-based LNA had downed a drone on Sunday in Tripoli’s southern suburb of Ain Zara, it said without elaborating.
In the latest turmoil since the toppling of Muammar Qaddafi in 2011, Haftar’s LNA has been unable to take Tripoli from the internationally recognized government despite fighting that has caused havoc in the capital’s southern suburbs and displaced tens of thousands of civilians.
