“Therefore, all of our arms, vehicles and military personnel will be under the command of the Libyan National Army formed in the Central Military Zone.” A statement posted on the Misurata Municipality’s Facebook page says.
It added that all of the brigades fighters and military leaders from Misurata are now part of the central military zone and will therefore be ready to be trained by the command of the Libyan National Army in the area.
