    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO, NOVEMBER 26 - The Tripoli prosecutor's office on Wednesday issued an arrest warrant for former general Khalifa Haftar, currently allied with government armed forces, after he conducted airstrikes the previous day on pro-Islamist militias supporting Omar Al-Hassi's 'parallel government' in the capital, report Libyan sources. Libyan military planes conducted further airstrikes Wednesday on pro-Islamist Libya Dawn bases in Tripoli, say military sources, adding that ''the army has entered eastern areas of the capital''. The sources noted that the Al-Burari battalion of Libya Dawn had defected to the government army. Two Libyan army soldiers have meanwhile been killed and five others injured in fighting against the Ansar Al-Sharia-linked Revolutionaries' Shura Council in Benghazi, the Egyptian news agency MENA quoted the director of the Al-Galaa hospital in eastern Libya as saying.
