GNA violated UN truce in Tripoli during Eid al Adha: LNA

The Government of the National Accord (GNA) violated on Sunday the truce in which the U.N. called for ceasefire on the occasion of Eid al-Adha, according to al-Karama Operations Room of the Libyan National Army (LNA).

The armed groups of the GNA shelled randomly the neighborhoods of Khallet al-Furjan, an area south of Tripoli, to target the LNA that has controlled the area since July 10.

Karama Operations Room said the breach of the ceasefire unmasks the “illegal GNA” and its “alleged army.”

“Militias in Tripoli do not follow any laws or military discipline. They do not recognize the U.N. or the international community. They do not respect any religious rituals,” the operations room added.

On Saturday, the GNA and LNA accepted a truce in Tripoli during Eid al-Adha, which U.N. Envoy Ghassan Salame called for to put an end to the ongoing violence in the capital during the Islamic holiday.
