Former general's forces are waging a war against an alliance of Libyan fighters including Ansar al-Sharia.

    Libyan forces aligned to former general Khalifa Haftar say they have made gains in Benghazi and the western mountains.

    Meanwhile, the government in Tripoli has warned regional powers to stop interfering in its internal affairs.
