The Libyan army said it now backs forces loyal to a former general who  launched a new bid Wednesday to recapture second city Benghazi from Islamist militias.
"The Libyan army claims 'Operation Dignity'" as one of its own campaigns, spokesman Colonel Ahmed al-Mesmari said, adding, "now it is one operation of the army, among others."
Forces loyal to former general Khalifa Haftar resumed their bid to oust Islamist militias from Benghazi Wednesday, four months after launching what they branded "Operation Dignity".
