Haftar militia stationed on the southern outskirts of Tripoli fired on Monday night a barrage of Grad missiles towards populated areas and Mitiga Airport.

Eyewitnesses did not report any casualties but confirmed that great damage was caused to the people's property.

The attack comes as an act of revenge by Haftar in response to his defeat in the battles that took place on Monday at the hands of the Libyan army forces, who forced his militias out of several cities in the western region.
