“Control over the Abu Grain area has been fully restored,” the GNA spokesman said.

Opposing the GNA, the Libyan National Army (LNA) lost several dozen soldiers, the PNS spokesman added.

According to local sources and LNA press service, few hours later the Libyan National Army (LNA) tried to take back control over the city and attacks the troops of the Government of National Accord (GNA) in the same area – Abu Grain.

“GNA troops inside Abu Grain are subjected to powerful bombing and strikes by the Libyan Air Force and artillery,” the LNA said.

Libyan civil war

In Libya, armed clashes are currently taking place between supporters of different leaders. The country is led by the Government of National Accord (GNA), headed by Prime Minister Fayez Saraj, the “eastern government” led by Abdullah Abdurrahaman at-Thani.

The eastern government is supported by the commander of the Libyan National Army, Khalifa Haftar.

Recall that January 13 in Moscow, negotiations were held between the heads of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Khalif Haftar and the Government of National Accord (GNA) Faiz Sarraj. Also present were members of the Foreign Ministries of Russia and Turkey.

On the meeting the commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, has notified Russia about the conditions for continuing negotiations on the signing of a peace agreement in Libya.

According to the requirements of Haftar, the militias operating in Libya are required to surrender weapons in the period from 45 to 90 days. This process should be controlled by a special commission created by the LNA together with the UN

Haftar also refused to recognize Turkey as an intermediary in resolving the situation in Libya, since the Turkish side is not neutral and supports the Government of National Accord (GNA).
