Libya: Video captures Haftar attack on civilians

The Libyan Army on Saturday released footage from closed-circuit street cameras showing Haftar militias' attack on a civilian settlement in the Zenata region, south of the capital Tripoli.

The video shows three people walking on the road and falling from an explosion, with debris scattered around and tree branches on the ground.

The Libyan Army has recently made gains against Haftar's militias, which are supported by France, Russia, the UAE, and Egypt.

Following the ouster of late ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, Libya’s government was founded in 2015 under a UN-led political deal. Since April 2019, the government has been under attack by Haftar’s forces, based in eastern Libya, and more than 1,000 people have been killed in the violence.
