Dignity Operation said it had mobilized land and air forces to repel what it described “the terrorist invaders.”

In a statement, Khalifa Haftar-led operation urged all local residents from Ras Lanuf to Sirte region and Jufra town in the south to restrict their movement. It also warned fighters of Al-Bunyan Al-Marsoos Operation in eastern Sirte to pull back to inside the city in order to avoid Dignity Operation airstrikes.
