Gov't forces attack pro-Hafter camp in southern Libya
   The attack targeted a pro-Haftar military camp in Al-Jufrah
Forces of the UN-backed unity government carried out an airstrike on Tuesday on a military camp belonging to East Libya-based commander Khalifa Hafter in the southern city of Al-Jufrah, according to local media.

The attack targeted the camp in the oasis town of Houn in southern Libya, 218 news channel said.

The channel, citing local sources, said the air defenses of pro-Haftar forces fired back at the warplane that carried out the airstrike.

There has been no reports of casualties.

Earlier this month, Haftar, who commands forces loyal to East Libya-based government, launched a military campaign to capture Tripoli, where the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) is based.

The GNA announced Monday that at least 76 people, including 24 civilians, had been killed since clashes erupted in the surroundings of capital Tripoli.

Since the 2011 ouster of late President Muammar Gaddafi, two seats of power have emerged in Libya: one in eastern Libya, and another in Tripoli, which enjoys UN support.
