Libya: GNA says it has taken Haftar’s stronghold

Government spokesman says GNA-aligned forces overran a camp manned by Haftar’s forces, seizing several vehicles.

Libyan renegade commander Khalifa Haftar has suffered a loss as the UN-recognised Government of National Accord advanced on his key stronghold of Tarhouna, to the southeast of the capital Tripoli, which Haftar’s forces have been trying to take for the past year.

At least 10 of Haftar’s soldiers were killed and dozens captured as many of them pulled back to defend Tarhouna.
