A Warplane of Khalifa Haftar’s militias carried out an airstrike on Sidi Aziz district in Derna, leaving no casualties, local sources from Derna reported.
Earlier, the so-called Omar Al-Mukhtar force of Haftar’s militias warned Derna’s residents about intention to carry out airstrikes on the city, claiming one of their airstrikes targeted, very successfully, a group of vehicles for whom they described as “terrorist groups” in Sidi Aziz, Derna. This claim was refuted by Derna Shura Council.
According to the Facebook page of so-called Omar Al-Mukhtar force, airstrikes will also target Shiha, Al-Sayida Khadija, and 400 neighborhoods, which are peopled by a number of residents as many of the displaced families returned recently after the uprooting of IS militants by Derna revolutionaries from the city.
A siege by Haftar’s militias around Derna has been on for weeks and it has been completed Wednesday by shutting off the eastern entrance, which was the last resort for the residents to receive foods and other necessities.
