The Address | Benghazi – Libya
SABHA – The Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) condemned on Tuesday what it called “military escalation” in the Southern Region, calling for an immediate halt to it, in a move observers saw as standing against the aspirations of the Libyan people of the South.
The condemnation came at a time when sources confirmed to the Address Journal the arrival of a number of wounded fighters of the forces opposing the Libyan National Army (LNA), who arrived at the hospital of the Tripoli Mitiga base in preparation for transferring them to Turkey for treatment.
The sources said that a plane belonging to GNA took off on Tuesday with a number of wounded who were wounded during clashes with LNA in the Southern region.
The sources pointed out that the plane took off on Tuesday morning from al-Feel oil field located in the basin of Marzek in the south-west of Libya.
Amidst a great public welcome, LNA launched a comprehensive military operation against terrorist groups, Chadian rebel opposition and criminal gangs in the South.
Several public and official sectors supported this process, as the LNA was able to control several sites and headquarters inside Sabha, that had been under the control of armed groups, and hand them over to the official bodies.
