Jihadist fighters in Libya lose one of their last remaining strongholds.

Jihadist fighters in Libya have lost one of their last remaining strongholds in the country’s second city.

Forces loyal to the military leader, Field Marshal KHALIFA HAFTAR, said they had driven local Islamist militias out of the Ganfouda district of Benghazi.

The spokesman for Field Marshal HAFTAR‘s forces – known as the Eastern Libyan Army – said they had freed the neighbourhood, but some militants had fled to a nearby area known as the “12 blocks”.

The area had been under siege for months and saw some of the worst fighting over control of the city.
