The commander of the self-proclaimed army in eastern Libya has been lodged at the Paris military hospital, Val De Grace, for treatment of a very serious cerebral bleed, reported Hugeux Vincent, who works for L’Express newspaper. 

According to the earlier sources on Tuesday, Haftar was first sent to Jordan as he suffered from a stroke, while preliminary sources at Libya Al-Ahrar TV Channel said he suffered from a heart attack.

Meanwhile, right after the news of Haftar’s bad health conditions, Al-Nabaa TV Channel reported an exclusive statement for Ahmed Al-Mismari, the spokesman for Haftar’s forces in eastern Libya, as saying that Haftar was well and the news of his deteriorated health conditions were untrue.

The Libyan people have been for the last ten hours awake and firmly poised holding in hand their mobile phones or sitting in front of laptops or desktops’ screen scrolling up and down news pages to obtain the final news about what would happen to Haftar.
