UN-backed gov’t announces takeover of rival army’s last stronghold in western Libya
The UN-backed Libyan government’s forces on Friday announced the takeover of Tarhuna city, the last stronghold of the rival east-based army in western Libya.
“Our brave forces took control over the entire city of Tarhuna, and taught forces of Haftar (east-based army’s commander) a lesson they will never forget,” said Mohamed Gonono, spokesman of the government forces, in a statement.
The government forces have sent a team to “search the city for any secret prisons or mass graves in order to uncover the fate of dozens of Libyans kidnapped or missing” during the fighting against the east-based army, Gonono added.
Tarhuna is located some 90 km southeast of the capital Tripoli.
Gonono on Thursday announced takeover of all Tripoli by expelling the east-based army from the capital city.
For more than a year, the east-based army has been leading a military campaign trying to take over Tripoli and topple the UN-backed government.
Amid repeated international calls for cease-fire, hundreds of civilians were killed and injured in the fighting while more than 150,000 others fled their homes.
Turkish army kills 6 PKK members in SE Turkey, northern Iraq
Turkish army killed six members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Turkey and northern Iraq, the Turkish defense ministry and interior ministry said on Friday in two separate statements.
“Our operations against the terrorist organization PKK continue resolutely. Four PKK terrorists were neutralized by airstrikes by means of reconnaissance and surveillance in Haftanin, Avasin and Zap regions in the north of Iraq,” the ministry tweeted.
In another statement, the Turkish interior ministry said its security forces “neutralized” two terrorists in southeastern Turkey.
The local gendarmerie commandos and special forces in the Mardin province launched operations in the rural areas of Omerli district, said the ministry in a written statement.
Turkey has long been conducting operations against the PKK in southeastern Turkey and in northern Iraq where the group has hideouts. These operations are intensified in the past few months. PKK members often use northern Iraq to launch cross-border attacks in Turkey.
The PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States, and the European Union, has been rebelling against the Turkish government for over 30 years, which has claimed the lives of more than 40,000 people.

“The aim of our being here today is to present on behalf of the Chief of Army staff, officers and soldiers of Nigerian army, Innoson vehicle G-Wagon 80 SUV as Buratai’s pledge to this institution.
Adeniyi said that the institute recognised the effort of Nigerian army in the fight against insurgency and other forms of insecurity in the country as well as performing its primary responsibility of defending the territorial integrity of the nation.
He said the institute has watched how the military has done this commendably to the admiration of all and to ensure that Nigeria remains one indivisible entity.
“In the process of doing this, we have also seen that they have realised the importance of maintaining effective communication and synergy with stakeholders not only in the areas of operations but also the wider Nigerian society.
“We have also seen the new trend of establishing the civil-military affairs office and also what we see as a step forward in the area of public relations to ensure that the civilian populace is on the same page with the vision and mission of Nigerian Army,” he said.
Adeniyi also commended the Nigerian army for the choice of the vehicle being a made in Nigeria product, saying it was a bold statement in believing in Nigerian products and the reputation of what Nigeria represents.
He pledged the readiness of the institute to support the vision of the Nigerian army to fight fake news.
“We have seen the havoc that fake news could constitute in major parts of lives; first, the situation of insurgency in the North East and of course the general defence of Nigeria and secondly the fight against COVID-19 pandemic.
“We have discovered that while efforts are ongoing to address these two major crisis, the incidence of fake news has constituted a major setback for us.
“We, as a professional institute, join the military and all the appropriate authorities to fight this scourge,” he said.
18 militiamen killed by army in combat in northeast DR Congo
At least 18 militiamen from the group CODECO were killed by the armed forces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (FARDC), in an operation launched since Monday in several localities of Djugu, Ituri province in the northeast of the country, according to Lieutenant Jules Ngongo, spokesman for the army on the spot in this area.
According to Jules Ngongo, this operation enabled the armed forces to recover at least six entities occupied for several days by the militiamen in the territory of Djugu. A FARDC soldier was also killed and another injured, and several weapons were recovered by the FARDC.
The combat took place in particular along Lake Albert on the border with Uganda where the militiamen gathered in several zones. According to the army spokesperson, the objective of the operations is to prevent the attackers from reorganizing to attack civilians and the police.
The ongoing fighting in Ituri province between the attackers and the military has already prompted more than a million people to flee their homes for refugees in displacement camps. Thousands more have already crossed the border into the Republic of Uganda.
According to the United Nations, attacks on civilians have intensified since March, especially around artisanal mining sites.
Libyan gov’t forces kill dozens of eastern-based army soldiers in southern Tripoli

The spokesman also said that the UN-backed government’s forces has seized eight armed vehicles of the eastern-based army, captured four soldiers, and destroyed 10 military vehicles.
Despite repeated international calls for cease-fire, the eastern-based army and the UN-backed government have been fighting for more than a year over the control of Tripoli, which killed and injured hundreds of civilians and displaced more than 150,000 others.
Rebels attack Sudanese army camp in Darfur
“Groups belonging to the Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) and Al Sahwa Revolutionary Council have attacked our forces in western Jebel Marra area,” the statement noted.
“The attack is a clear violation of the declared cease-fire and an attempt to drag Darfur back to the state of war and security chaos,” it added.
The Sudanese army said it maintains the right of defending its sites and protecting the citizens against terrorist and criminal acts by such groups.
The army also has the right to respond to any aggression and take necessary measures to eliminate threats and prevent recurrence of these terrorist acts, the statement noted.
On Oct. 16 last year, the Sudanese army declared a comprehensive cease-fire in Darfur region.
Armed groups have been fighting the government since 2003.

Olowo assures Nigerian Army of more support
Oba Ajibade Gbadegesin Ogunoye III, the Olowo of Owo kingdom, has assured the Nigerian Army of its support in the fight against terrorism, kidnapping, banditry among other security challenges in the country.
The monarch gave this assurance on Tuesday in his palace at Owo when the Brigade Commander, 32 Artillery Brigade, Brig. Gen. Zakari Abubakar paid a courtesy visit to the palace in Ondo state.
Ogunoye, who lauded the Nigerian army for the success recorded in the ongoing fight against insecurity and other criminal activities in the nation particularly in Ondo state and Owo environs, said it was highly commendable.
“We will continue to support the military in order to further the course of peace and stability in the nation and Ondo State in general,” he said.
Earlier, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, who presented the letter of appreciation for projecting the Nigerian Army in good light to the monarch, said Ogunoye had helped security agency to tackle criminality in the state.
Buratai, who was represented by Brig. Gen. Zakari Abubakar, Commander of 32 Artillery Brigade in Ondo State, promised that the Nigerian Army would not relent in carrying out their constitutional role of protecting lives and property of citizens.
“Oba Ajibade Gbadegesin has been a lead advocate in projecting the Nigerian army in good light, considering his high profile and high esteem.
“And for also providing credible information to the security agencies in the state to tackle crime in Owo community,” he said.

Nigerian Army Medical Corps gets new Acting Corps Commander
The Nigerian Army Medical Corps gets a new Acting Corps Commander, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
The handing and taking over ceremony was held on Monday at the Headquarters, Nigerian Army Medical Corps, Bonny Camp cantonment, Lagos.
The new Acting Corps Commander said that his vision was to have a highly regimented, professional and accountable Corps in the delivery of its services.
“The Corps is unparalleled in the recent history of the Nigerian Army. As such, there is no gainsaying that to whom, much is given much is expected.
“By extension, performance, excellence and efficiency in the delivery of prompt and enviable healthcare to our officers, soldiers and their families is therefore not an exception, but the norm henceforth,” he said.
He said that regimentation was the bedrock of military indoctrination and panacea for victory at warfare and success in peacetime administration.
Solebo implored all personnel to reflect on the ethics, customs and tradition of the military and abide strictly by the rules therein, if we are to foster an enviable Corps for the future.
He urged all corps commanders to ensure that all military personnel in their various units engaged in physical activities as stipulated by the Nigerian Army to improve the performance at work.
According to him, to improve the performance at work, a physically fit body and mentally alert mind are essential.
“As such, all commanders are to ensure all military personnel of the Corps in their respective units actively participate in physical activities by way of morning physical training.
“Participation in this activities are to be reflected in the PER’s of all personnel by their respective directors and commanders.
“All officers and soldiers of the Corps will also work to maintain their body mass index prescribed by the ASA.
“With the goal of reinforcing and bringing clinical, and surgical expertise closer to the location of injured amongst troops.
“Such that intervention is faster with the expected effect of further reduction in morbidity and mortality,” he said.
Solebo also said that all medical units would benefit from declaring their average drug usage on a monthly or quarterly basis.
According to him, drug availability on the NHIS in our hospitals and the scourge of fake drugs had become a topical issue.
“All medical units would benefit from declaring their average drug usage on a monthly or quarterly basis. This would aid budgeting and efficient use of primary funds including capitation and fee for service.
“A drive towards centralisation of drug procurement from a few validated sources would be urgently explored, whilst our drug manufacturing unit continue to explore capacity building and expansion to meet the drug consumption need of the NA,” he said.
He also thanked the outgoing Acting Corps Commander on the effort made to reposition the Corps thus far.
