LIBYAPROSPECT – Derna
Derna Shura Council announced, in a statement on Sunday, that the body of the warplane pilot, Col. Adel Al-Jehany, would be handed over to his family through the Notable Council of Derna.
The statement said that the Shura Council hadn’t handed the body because the forces of Dignity Operation under the leadership of General Khalifa Haftar didn’t give a body of one of its fighters who was killed last June in Al-Dhar Al-Hamar area.
On the other side, Haftar’s forces announced that they are ready to break in Derna within few days.
A source close to Haftar’s forces said, on Monday, that there is a plan to storm in Derna. The plan is to control strategic areas around the city, such as Wadi Al-Naqa, the western side of the city.
The source added that Haftar’s forces are ready to control other essential areas around the city to prepare for attacking the center of the city of Derna.
The source clarified that Haftar’s forces had formed a joint chamber in Ain Mara area, which is controlled by a supporting force that is not an official army.
In the same context, the spokesperson of Haftar’s forces, Ahmed Al-Mesmary, said, on Sunday, that units of his troops moved towards the city.
Al-Mesmary added that one of the warplanes targeted houses in Al-Dhar Al-Hamar area and destroyed two cars.
