The self-styled Libyan National Army seized most of the eastern coastal city of Derna from extremist groups who have controlled it for years, a spokesperson said on Friday, amid fierce fighting since late April.

The LNA forces have captured “more than 75% of Derna and forced out terrorists from most of the city,” Ahmed al-Mesmari told The Associated Press.’

“Our forces already control the seaport of the city and much of its eastern coast,” he said. “Just a few pockets remain under control of extremist groups and the armed forces have been clearing them,” he said.

He added that the forces have been advancing on the city from all sides. The LNA released a video footage on Wednesday showing fierce battles raging, apparently inside a neighborhood in Derna.
