Gen Haftar’s eastern forces took control of key areas in the oil-rich south during a January offensive.
They are now concentrated in the north west, where they are battling for control of the capital, Tripoli.
Sabha Medical Centre later released a statement putting the death toll at nine.
Gen Haftar has his powerbase in the east of the country where he is allied to one of two rival governments.
He launched an offensive with his Libyan National Army (LNA) on the south in January, saying he wanted to purge the area of “terrorists and criminal groups”.
Then last month, Gen Haftar ordered his forces to advance to Tripoli, where they are now embroiled in a battle with fighters allied to the country’s UN-backed and internationally recognised Government of National Accord.
Prime Minister Fayez al-Serraj has vowed to defend the capital and has accused Gen Haftar of launching a coup.
