The spokesman of Dignity Operation’s Saiqa militia, Melod Zawi, has declared that the military operations are still ongoing in the district of Sidi Kharibish in Benghazi, denying the reports by some social networking sites that the district was “liberated”, confirming that such news is baseless.

Armed clashes have escalated between the fighters of Shura Council of Benghazi and Dignity Operation which has been imposing a siege on Sidi Kharibish for months.
