Libya: Pro-GNA forces take control of Sabratha city

Footage shot on Saturday showed the third century Roman ampitheatre and the modern-day city of Sabratha, after forces supporting the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) announced they had managed to retake the city from a rival militia, on Friday. Used ammunition could be seen strewn across the old ampitheatre, which the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) managed... Еще to take control of in 2015. Meanwhile, the city had sustained serious damage from fighting, with buildings defaced from bullets and explosions, and vehicles burnt out in the road. After weeks of clashes, the pro-GNA forces pushed out a militia run by the former head of a smuggling network Ahmad Dabbashi from Sabratha this week.
