The Libyan army is now in control over most parts of the country said Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar.

Only a few areas remain outside of their control, he added.


During a meeting with officers and soldiers from the Libyan army in Benghazi, Haftar said: “The size of Libya is 1,760,000 km. The army is currently in control of 1,730,000 km, there’s only a little left.”

Haftar also said that the army is now in control of the area west of Tripoli from Zuwarah al-Mushrifah, to Tunisia’s border and extending to Libya’s Zawiya, located 30 km west of the capital.

Haftar said that “during the next few days, Zawiya will also be under [the army's] control.”
