Clashes intensified on Monday between forces under the command of the Government of National Accord and those attacking Tripoli under Khalifa Haftar’s command on southern Tripoli frontlines.

The fierce fighting was reported on frontlines of Airport Road, Al-Sawani, Al-Twaisha and Qasir Benghashir, all of which are near the Tripoli International Airport.

Reports of injuries and deaths were also made as many airstrikes by both sides took place in daylight and at night.

Haftar launched his offensive on Tripoli on April 04, since then, about 450 people have been killed and over 2500 injured, not to mention the tens of thousands who got displaced and the damage done to houses and infrastructure.
