The Libyan Army forces under the command of the Government of National Accord had advanced on most southern Tripoli frontlines after Khalifa Haftar’s terrorist militias fled the area, leaving behind mines in several houses and residential buildings.
The heaviest clashes were seen on Salah Al-Deen frontline over the last months, yet on Friday, the GNA forces seized control of many positions in the area, especially Al-Tikbali Camp, Old Mosque, Passports Building and Al-Zuhoor Neighborhood, knowing that those areas had been mostly destroyed.
The Libyan Army forces under GNA’s command also advanced on Ain Zara frontline, especially in Al-Gabayliya, as the commander of Ain Zara frontline Yousef Al-Ameen told Libya Alahrar.
Al-Ameen added that GNA forces had destroyed two tanks for Haftar’s militias on Al-Zatarna frontline, as Haftar’s militias keep retreating from southern Tripoli.
On Mashroa Al-Hadba frontline, GNA forces have also advanced pushing Haftar’s militias farther away, yet the terrorist militias left behind a number of mines in the areas they escaped from.
The commander of the Tripoli military zone Abdelbaset Marwan has confirmed that they had seized control over many southern Tripoli frontlines, saying the landmines and planted explosives were very dangerous to anyone entering the liberated areas, which was also reiterated by Burkan Al-Ghadab Operation, saying no residents can return to their houses in the freed areas until military engineers finish removing mines and explosives planted by Haftar’s terrorist militias.
In the meantime, as GNA forces advanced on southern Tripoli frontlines, Libyan Air Force continued to carry out surveillance missions to delist movements of targets in Tarhouna city, where the last majority of Haftar’s militias are barricaded.
GNA forces called on the residents of Tarhouna to stay at home and away from military locations as every armed person will be a target for the Libyan Air Force and Burkan Al-Ghadab Operation forces on the ground.
