Officials from Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army announced that they are launching the final stage of Tripoli operations and have made numerous gains around the Libyan capital. These claims, however, have been tempered by realities on the ground, as the stalemated enters its eighth month.
Less than a week after the Government of National Accord (GNA) announced its plans to resume flights at the Mitiga Airport in Tripoli, the Libyan National Army (LNA) launched an airstrike on the military section of the airport.
Despite a ceasefire in August, heavy fighting around Tripoli continues amidst an ongoing military offensive by Khalifa Haftar's Libyan National Army against the forces loyal to the Government of National Accord.
Spokesperson for Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA) says over 200 people will be put on trial for terrorism charges. Human rights organisations have expressed their concerns over whether they will be fair.
The Libyan National Army (LNA) led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar has announced the beginning of the second phase of its operation to liberate the city of Derna from the Derna Mujahideen Shura Council.
