LNA launches airstrikes on GNA armed groups

The Libyan National Army (LNA) launched airstrikes on sites of the Government of National Accord (GNA)’s armed groups in southern and eastern Tripoli early Thursday.

The airstrikes targeted el-Mouz housing project, eastern Tripoli, and an air supply camp in Ain Zara, southern Tripoli.

This came a few hours after fierce clashes erupted between the LNA and armed groups of the GNA at the axes of Tueisha and Ramla, near Tripoli, as well as Tripoli International Airport’s bridge, which has been controlled by the LNA since Tuesday.

The GNA controls most areas near Ramla axis while the LNA has seized Tueisha area.

In the clashes, various types of medium and heavy weapons were used, and several air strikes were carried out by the GNA.

On Tuesday evening, the GNA hit al-Toughar area with more than six shells that landed near residential areas of al-Zahra Bridge, southwest of Tripoli, according to some residents of the area.
