During the past few days, the army succeeded in controlling fighting axes and strategic camps south of Tripoli, the most prominent of which are Hamza, Yarmouk, and Takbali camps.

Haftar militia continues to suffer heavy losses, as a result of harsh strikes in all cities of the western coast and up to the border with Tunisia, in addition to the strategic “Al-Wattia” base (west), the towns of Badr and Tiji, and the cities of Al-Asba in the western mountain (southwest of Tripoli).

With the support of Arab and European countries, the Haftar militia has launched since April 4, 2019 a faltering attack to take control of Tripoli, the internationally recognized seat of government, killing and injuring civilians, along with extensive damage.
