Libya: GNA's Sarraj visits Port of Tripoli hit in missile attack by Haftar forces

Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA) leader Fayez al-Sarraj attended the Port of Tripoli on Wednesday following the missile attack by the Libya National Army (LNA) led by General Khalifa Haftar. Sarraj can be seen inspecting various containers that sustained damage after the Libyan National Army (LNA) said they attacked the sea port in an attempt to hit a Turkish ship carrying arms and... Еще ammunitions. Sarraj and the GNA assert that the missiles hit a medical supplies deport instead. Three civilians were killed and five wounded, according to local reports. Fighting has been taking place around the Libyan capital since the LNA, which controls much of Libya's east and parts of the south, first launched an offensive to gain control of Tripoli from the GNA in April. The conflict eventually settled into a stalemate. At the Berlin conference on January 19, world leaders agreed on upholding a UN arms embargo and implementing a ceasefire in Libya. The UN's top Libya envoy Ghassan Salame told press on Tuesday the sea port in Libya’s capital Tripoli was attacked, saying that the truce is “very fragile” and “often violated.”
