LNA General Command Calls Residents of Tripoli to Stay Away from Militia Positions – Al Marsad

The Military Information Division (MID) of the General Command of the Libyan National Army (LNA) has disseminated a concise briefing on the military operations during the past hours.

[Libya, 30 November 2019] – The LNA Military Information Division stressed that its military units are exerting their full control over new positions that include one of the most important deployment concentrations for the militias aligned with the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) in the axes of al-Aziziya and al-Hira.

The LNA Military Information Division pointed out that the new critical advances by the LNA troops came in the wake of fierce clashes between the LNA forces units and the GNA-aligned terrorist and criminal groups, which suffered extensive equipment and personnel casualties on the frontlines .

“In parallel with the military operations in the past hours, the LNA Air Force fighter jets carried out a number of sorties, which included more than one airstrike on the positions and deployments of the enemy in the axes of Tripoli, as well as extensive aerial reconnaissance in some regions of southern Libya as well as in the Gulf of Sirte and some other locations within the military operations theatre,” the MID briefing added.

The LNA Military Information Division also stressed the need for all to contribute to maintaining confidentiality of military operations and the frontline positions of the LNA troops, calling on the residents of the capital to stay away as much as possible from the positions of the terrorist groups and criminal militias in accordance with the instructions of the Commander-in-Chief of the Libyan National Army, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, on critical importance of maintaining and preserving the safety of the civilian population and their properties in and around Tripoli.
