The Libyan Address Journal

The Libyan National Army, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, announced that it had re-maintained R-17 tactical missiles, after maintaining, testing, and training soldiers on them.

The LNA spokesperson, Ahmed Al-Mismari said, during a press conference in Benghazi, that these missiles were powerful and deterrent, and their range reached 300 kilometers, indicating that the army was able to maintain a “complete combat formation” of these old Soviet missiles and that its units had practically tested them.

Regarding the military situation on the frontlines with the forces of the Government of National Accord west of the city of Sirte, the army spokesman confirmed that the military situation has not changed there since June 8. He indicated that the army has stopped their operations west of the Sirte and Jufra regions since then, according to the Cairo Declaration.

Al-Mismari again accused Turkey that it is still transporting Syrian, Tunisian, and African terrorists to the areas of Al-Hishah, Al-Qaddahiya, and Zamzam, located west of Sirte.

He announced that the army monitored the movements of tanks and artillery missile vehicles near Abu Nujaym town on Tuesday, for those he described as militias, in an attempt he said was intended to advance towards Al-Jufra.
