TRIPOLI – Libyan National Army is proceeding to downtown Tripoli as part of its forces operation to liberate from the grip of the militias, LNA Military Information Division said on Thursday.
“We are just few kilometers from the center of the capital,” the Division said in a statement. “We are ready to receive military orders from the General Command of the Libyan National Army to liberate what remained of the capital Tripoli,” it added.
LNA air forces had destroyed three vehicles loaded with ammunition belonging to the militias allied with the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), the Military Information Division said Thursday.
The vehicles were targeted after being monitored by LNA air forces in the Aziziyah frontline in Tripoli outskirts, the Division added.
LNA air force fighter jets had also pursued a Turkish drone and targeted it as it was landing at Mitiqa Airport in Tripoli after it raided LNA forces, according to LNA Military Information Division.
Mitiqa Airport announced later that the eastern side of the airport was targeted and confirmed that the bombing was outside the runway and did not affect the navigation operation.
