LNA moves to extend operations to west Libya

Troops from the Libyan National Army (LNA) based in Al-Bayda city headed west on Wednesday to an undisclosed location, according to a source in the LNA.

The troops moved upon instructions from the General Command, he added without revealing the task assigned to these troops.

The participating troops have partaken in all LNA battles in Benghazi, Derna, oil crescent area, and the south region against extremist and terrorist groups.

Meanwhile, the LNA forces on Monday advanced to Abu Hadi village, south of Sirte.

Sirte Protection Force (SPF) announced Sunday the state of emergency after the advance of LNA forces near Sirte.

The SPF added in a statement that it had tasked patrols to be present iareas 90km to south and west of Sirte, saying LNA’s advance is unacceptable provocation.
For months, the LNA has been involved in heavy clashes with terrorists in a wide-scale operation to liberate the south region which would greatly facilitate the army’s mission if it was ordered to move on Tripoli, which has been under militia control for five years.
