Ubari Protection Force in the southern region announced its affiliation to the Volcano of Rage operation in its battle to defend the capital from warlord Khalifa Haftar's attack.

The force affirmed in a statement that it will engage with all its members, including the border and anti-terrorism units, which previously joined Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous Force in their battle against ISIS in Sirte.

It also condemned in the strongest terms the war waged on Tripoli by Haftar, describing it as a barbaric terrorist attack, in which mercenaries committed numerous atrocities, of killings, torturing, and the mutilation of bodies, as well as the bombing of children, elderly people, and women.
