On the frontline: Bullets fly as battle for Tripoli continues

Militias loosely affiliated with a weak UN-backed government were on Sunday defending Tripoli from the self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA), led by Field Marshal Khalifa Hifter.
More than 120 people have been killed since the Libyan commander launched an assault on the capital 10 days ago, igniting clashes with rival militias, the UN health agency said Sunday.
The World Health Organisation said 121 people have been killed in the fighting and another 561 have been wounded.
It did not specify whether they were fighters or civilians.

Violent clashes between LNA and GNA forces continue near Tripoli

Violent clashes continue in the outskirts of Tripoli between the battalions loyal to the UN-backed Government of the National Accord (GNA) and units of Libyan National Army (LNA) led by Khalifa Hifter.

Clashes were renewed in the areas of Ain Zara and Wadi Al-Rabie, with the escalation of heavy smoke caused by heavy shelling that ended with the GNA gaining partial control of Ain Zara and with a number of casualties on both sides.

The capital Tripoli has been witnessing violent clashes in various areas since last Wednesday after the Libyan National Army announced a major military operation to clear the capital of militias.
