The GNC said that the systematic attacks in Benghazi by rogue Gen. Khalifa Haftar’s forces have caused widespread destruction to the city's infrastructure.

In a statement Monday, the GNC confirmed that these attacks have also doubled the number of IDPs and led to the spread of diseases.    

The statement criticized the international community's silence towards these attacks, reaffirming that the crimes committed by Haftar’s forces are nothing less than war crimes.

Press reports said that Khalifa Haftar has hired 400 African mercenaries to help him gain victory in Benghazi.

The rogue General has been fighting for the control of Benghazi for more than a year now. With no results have been achieved so far, thousands of local residents fled the fighting while living conditions there have become very poor.
