The fighters of the self-styled army in eastern Libya led by Khalifa Haftar have killed two unarmed civilians in broad daylight in Derna amid tens of peer fighters chanting and applauding saying “Allah Akbar.”
A video posted on social media shows the graphic moment when fighters for the self-styled army torturing two Derna citizens and badmouthing them before opening a barrage of gunfire on them from a point blank distance.
The horrific scene is so shocking to watch as the two unarmed civilians were left in blood an completely penetrated by tens of pullets.
This came as the forces led by Haftar advanced farther into the center of Derna, which has been under attack for the last 50 days and under a siege for the last two years amid international and local silence.
