The LNA, led by Commander Khalifa Haftar, a likely aspirant in the upcoming Libyan elections is attempting to restore stability in the region and has made a pledge to stop the anarchy that ensued after the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi, seven years ago.

Haftar, who is seen as a potential contender in national elections, launched a military offensive in the city in 2014 following a series of bombing attacks.

The LNA has reportedly been targeted in several small scale attacks in recent months.

Libya has been wracked by violence and divisions since dictator Moamer Kadhafi was toppled and killed in a 2011 NATO-backed uprising.

The Head of the Chamber General Wanis Bokhmada, instructed all mosques in Benghazi to "install surveillance cameras within two weeks".

Haftar does not recognise the U.N. -backed government based in the western capital Tripoli.
