Militia Fires Four Rockets at Libyan Army Base

Warlord Khalifa Haftar’s militia on Thursday fired four rockets aimed at targeting Libyan troops deployed west of Sirte.

Abdul-Hadi Dara, who is the military spokesman said in a statement, “Haftar’s militia fired four rockets at the Buerat area located west of the city of Sirte, which is a base for the Libyan army.”

Dara said the attack didn’t cause any casualties.

On Aug. 21, the Libyan government announced a truce and ordered the military to stop operations against warlord Khalifa Haftar’s militias.

The army, however, has since reported several breaches of the cease-fire by militias.

Libya has been torn by civil war since the ouster of late ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
