The Protection Force of Sirte has released a statement following the death of one of its members who was killed in an airstrike by a UAE-backed drone of Haftar's militias yesterday.

The force explained that the deceased was killed on patrol in the city.

A few days ago, the force announced the death of two of its members in an airstrike conducted south of the city.

Haftar's forces had intensified their raids on Tripoli and other cities during the past two days, most of which hit civilian targets.
