The Address | Benghazi – Libya
Libyan National Army (LNA) is expected to open a new battlefront on the advance on Tripoli by sending forces to the coastal city of Sirte.
Military sources told local media that the LNA dispatched major forces to Sirte, the hometown of late leader Moammar al-Gaddafi. They said that the move was part of the LNA’s operations to liberate Tripoli from terrorist gangs.
LNA did not officially announce the move on Sirte, but circulated photos on social media showed LNA forces heading towards Sirte on Saturday morning.
Forces loyal to the Government of National Accord (GNA) in Sirte had denied over the past two days that the LNA was marching on the city. They have since deployed patrols in the city suburbs.
