#AceNewsReport – July.11: The funeral at Benghazi’s Huwari cemetery was for Khalifa Mismari, the assistant commander of Libya’s special forces under former leader Muammar Gaddafi, who was toppled in 2011, a military source said: A Reuters witness saw two burned out cars at the scene of the blast.

According to the military source, the current head of the special forces, Wanis Bukhamada, was attending the funeral but was unharmed: Since 2014, Libya has been divided between rival political and military factions based in Tripoli and the eastern part of the country: The special forces have become a key unit aligned with Khalifa Haftar, the military commander who controls eastern Libya.

Since early April, Haftar has been waging an offensive to try to take the capital Tripoli, in the west of the country, though his campaign has stalled.
