Libya: Libyan National Army (LNA) announces major advances in Tripoli battles against Government of National Accord (GNA)
The Libyan National Army announced Saturday that its forces have made new advances on ground in the capital, Tripoli, following what it called a “violent attack against armed militias” loyal to Fayez al-Sarraj’s Government of National Accord (GNA).
LNA spokesman Major General Ahmed al-Mesmari said forces, fighting for six months to liberate Tripoli, have launched a “fierce attack on the terrorist militias in Salah al-Din area to free it and clear it of terrorist and criminal gangs.”
Mesmari pointed out that the attack was supported by heavy air cover by the air forces, inflicting mass losses on the militias.
He pledged to continue the attack until “wiping these terrorist militias and cleaning the capital from their presence,” asserting that the pace of operations continues in accordance with plans and stages laid out by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar to liberate Tripoli and get rid of all terrorist militias.
