Militias of rogue General Khalifa Haftar attacked on Friday forces of Derna Shura Council in Al-Fatayah, where council fighters are waging a fierce war against the fugitives of ISIS group.

Sources said Haftar militias used heavy weaponry in their surprise attack but the council fighters managed to defeat them. The fighting is still ongoing up to this moment, according to the sources.

"Haftar groups also used helicopters in their attack on Shura fighters who were in the contact line with ISIS militants," the sources said.

The attack of Haftar militias in Al-Fatayh will relieve pressure on ISIS militants after Shura fighters have tightened the noose around them.
