Libyan commander of the self-styled army has suffered a heart attack and has been flown to Jordan for intensive care, Libya Al-Ahrar TV reported.

Al-Nabaa media outlet also added that Haftar will be later today transferred to France, or any other EU country for better healthcare as he might be in a coma.

Al-Nabaa later confirmed that sources told it that Haftar is already in France now and he is in a coma due to a lung disease.

It also reported an exclusive statement for Ahmed Al-Mismari, the spokesman for Haftar’s forces in eastern Libya, as saying that Haftar is well and the news of his deteriorated health conditions are untrue.
