The Libyan Army said Saturday that Khalifa Haftar's forces killed a young man called Ali Mohammed Jumua in Soukna area, Jufra, where Russian Wagner Group and Sudanese Janjaweed mercenaries are operating along with Haftar's forces.

The spokesman for the Sirte-Jufra Operations Room, Abdelhadi Drah, told reporters that the young man was killed in the center of Soukna by gunshots fired by a fighter for pro-Haftar battalion 77 of brigade 128 before midnight.
