39 people, including  security personnel and civilians, have been killed, while 71 civilians injured in landmines explosions laid by Khalifa Haftar’s militia in Tripoli. 

The Libyan Centre for Mine Clearance and War Remnants said, "110 were killed and wounded in explosions caused by landmines planted south of Tripoli."

Last week, the Joint Committee for Monitoring and Documenting Human Rights Violations announced about 27 people dead and 40 others wounded in explosions caused by land mines and devices planted by Haftar’s forces in civilian homes, where they were stationed before fleeing the area.

Last week, the Libyan Army also announced the launch of “Operation Paths of Victory” to liberate eastern and central cities and towns, including Sirte and Al-Jafra.
