Mutual accusations between rival militias fighting in Tripoli

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – The so-called Joint Force of Deterrence (Rada’a) Abu Salim, led by Abdul Ghani al-Kalki, known as “Gnewa” confirmed on Sunday that its fighters are progressing steadily towards an unnamed goal, indicating that this progress comes away from what it called “the air bubbles” and “Facebook victories”.

Rada’a Abu Salim added in a post on via its account on Facebook that there are surprises for those it described as “cowards” who shower innocents with indiscriminate rockets, in a reference to Al Samoud Brigade led by Salah Badi.

Tripoli recently witnessed violent clashes between rival militias all funded by the proposed Government of National Accord, which resulted in the killing of more than 100 people, while hundreds of others were wounded, displaced, or missing.

On the other hand, the Libyan National Army Spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed al-Mesmari said that LNA has nothing to do with the ongoing clashes between the militias in Tripoli, and that the army continues to fully secure all the areas under its control such as the entire region of Cyrenaica east of Libya, including Benghazi, Derna, and Tobruk, and large parts of the south and the Libyan west.
