Fourteen people – including both Libyan soldiers and fighters loyal to late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi – have been killed in clashes between the two sides over the last three days in the southwestern city of Sabha, according to a Libyan army commander.
"Militants have organized gangs that attack army garrisons at night," Mohamed Bosifi, army commander in Sabha, told Anadolu Agency on Thursday.
He said that around 65 people – including both soldiers and militants – had been injured in the clashes.
Bosifi said the armed men were being supported by Gaddafi's son, Al-Saadi, currently believed to be in Niger.
"They can't operate during the day, fearing air strikes," he said. "So they attack at night."
Bosifi said that the Libyan air force had bombed several concentrations of pro-Gaddafi militants in different areas of Sabha.
The militants continue to control Tamahid Air Force Base, the country's largest and most important airbase, which they captured a few days ago.
