The Libyan Address Journal
The Libyan National Army (LNA) has denied on Friday any intention to launch attacks on the cities in western Libya.
“The letter of the defense minister of Sarraj claiming that units of the Libyan National Army are moving toward cities in western Libya is mere false allegations,” said Ahmad Al-Mismari, spokesman of the army, in a statement.
“Our forces are committed to the cease-fire declared in Cairo on June 8, and to their positions near the city of Sirte and Jufra district,” the statement added.
The spokesman accused the rival Tripoli-based government of attempting to thwart the political process in Libya and carry out “provocative operations.”
A day earlier, the Defense Minister of the Government of National Accord, Salah Al-Namroush, issued instructions to western military units to remain alert, citing information about a possible attack by the army on western cities.
