Published on South Front, Apr 30, 2019
After a series of unsuccessful attempts to recapture Tripoli International Airport from the Libyan National Army (LNA), forces loyal to the Governemnt of National Accord (GNA) adapted their tactics.
Pro-GNA units advanced south of the airport capturing the villages of Soq al Sabt and Sabi’ah and cutting off the road leading to the airport. With this move, they seek to isolate LNA units in the airport area and to force them to retreat. Currently, fierce clashes are ongoing in the surroundings of Soq al Sabt and Sabi’ah.
