After series of air raids, Haftar announced a new victory in Libya
TRIPOLI, (BM) – Libyan National Army (LNA) Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar announced a new victory in Libya on Monday, June 1, said the representative of the LNA Ahmed al-Mismari, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
According to him, the Haftar’s army regained control of the city of al-Asabia, located 100 kilometers from Tripoli. He said that this happened after a series of air raids and attacks on takfiri formations in the city of al-Jebel al-Garbi. Starting May 21, the city was controlled by the Government of National Accord (PNC).
On May 26, it became known that the GNA army suspended military operations against LNA fighters for 48 hours in order to give “the last chance for illegal armed groups from the east of Libya” to resolve the conflict. At the same time, the truce was finally frustrated, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.
The situation in the country became aggravated after in April the LNA announced its assumption of power in Libya and the decision to withdraw from the Shirat Agreement. It was clarified that it was on him that the PNS had been previously formed.
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).
