TRIPOLI: Heavy Battles between Libyan forces

TRIPOLI: Heavy Battles between Libyan forces - GEOPOLITIKI.COM

Serious armed clashes broke out in the Libyan capital of Tripoli early Friday between Turkish-backed forces. These are the worst and most violent clashes in the Libyan capital since the LNA-GNA truce was reached.

A resident of the Salah al-Din area in southern Tripoli said that the shootings started at around 2.30 in the morning and continued during the day with light weapons and sometimes with mortar fire.

According to a Libyan official, the clashes started because the 444th brigade did not obey the orders of the Libyan military administration.

The clash in Tripoli between armed groups competing for control of both territory and state institutions is expected to further undermine the prospect of holding elections in December as part of a United Nations plan to end the fighting in Libya.
