According to a private TV channel on Saturday, a statement Saturday said 139 people were wounded in the fighting that broke out a day earlier in Benghazi when army troops under the command of Gen. Khalifa Hifter besieged the bases of the two militias.
Military aircraft and helicopters under Hifter´s command also flew over the city. The fighting halted Saturday.
The central government criticized Hifter´s attack, although many in the country were divided over the offensive.
Benghazi has been gripped by violence blamed on powerful militias who act outside of government control.
Benghazi´s airport was closed for the second day Saturday because of the fighting.
