Libyan Army Spokesman, Mohammed Gunouno has disclosed that their forces had destroyed an operation room run by "a gang of mercenaries" -according to him- in Qasr bin Ghashir town on Saturday.

Gunouno added in a press briefing Sunday that Haftar's forces kept tight-lipped about their casualties, "but our sources confirmed that the bodies of nine mercenaries had arrived at their field hospital," he said.

"The multinational gangs tried to advance towards Aziziyah in an attempt to cut off the roads between Gharyan city and Tripoli, but our forces were ready for them," he added.

He also pointed to the attack conducted by UAE-backed drones of Haftar on a neighbourhood in Swani district, which left dead and wounded.
