Libya’s GNA forces seize strategic district from Haftar’s forces in south Tripoli
The Libyan Army’s Burkan Al-Ghadab Operation (Volcano of Rage Operation) forces have seized full control of the district of Sebea in southern Tripoli after a day-long deadly fighting with Khalifa Haftar’s forces.
The forces under the command of the Government of National Accord (GNA) started their attack on Haftar’s forces in Sebea on early Wednesday, clashing with them for over 10 hours before they had control over the district.
Local media reported the GNA forces as they paraded their presence at the roundabout of Sebea, its neighborhoods, hospital and aviation institute.
The media also said that the fighting saw airstrikes carried out by both sides leading to tens of casualties.
Sebea is very strategic for Haftar’s forces positioned in southern Tripoli, like Qasir Benghashir district, and with the GNA forces seizing it, Haftar’s forces have lost another main supply line of arms, fuel and ammunition just like that of Gharyan over a month ago.
