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.
