TRIPOLI – Air Force of the Libyan National Army (LNA) conducted two airstrikes on Friday which targeted a gathering of militias south of Tripoli.
According to LNA’s Dignity Operations Room, the first airstrike targeted a force of Chadian mercenaries affiliated with militant leader Osama al-Jouaili, during which a number of militants were killed and many vehicles were destroyed.
LNA’s Dignity Operations Room also revealed that those mercenaries are fighting in exchange for money. Each mercenary used to receive three thousand Libyan Dinars per day. Now they’re been paid one thousand and two hundred Libyan Dinars.
Al-Jouaili is using the country’s state funds to pay those mercenaries, LNA’s Dignity Operations Room said.
The second airstrike targeted a gathering of terrorist militias in the axis of the airport road. These militias were preparing to carry out combat missions against LNA.
