The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TRIPOLI – The Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), led by Prime Minister Fayez Al-Saraj, announced a ceasefire on Friday.
In a statement, GNA declared “cessation of all military operations in every Libyan territory”.
GNA also called for a de-militarized zone in Sirte and Jufra.
The two coastal cities witnessed military mobilization from GNA and the Libyan National Army (LNA), led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, in the past few months.
GNA proposed a joint security oversight between both sides to ensure stability in the two cities.
The Tripoli-based government also called for presidential and parliamentary elections to be held next March.
