An armed group broke into the Al-Qardhabiya Martyrs' Equestrian Club, in Haftar's-controlled Sirte, on Saturday, a source from the city has confirmed.

The gunmen vandalized the club and set fire to the place before getting away with some equipment and tools used for horse riding.

It is not the first time for Haftar's militia to commit such heinous acts. During their control of Ain Zara Equestrian Club before they were driven out of Tripoli by the Libya Army forces last June, these militias looted horses and equipment from the club worth millions of dinars.
