Fighting continues outside the Yarmuk camp, south of the Libyan capital, with the civilian population, as well as migrants and refugees, as collateral victims of these violent clashes.
The Tripoli militias are fighting on behalf of the internationally recognized National Unity Government (GNA) led by Fayez al-Sarraj.
Lacking a regular army and strong security forces, the GNA is forced to rely on militias to fight the Eastern Libya Army embodied by the strongman of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Marshal Khalifa Haftar.
“God willing, we will win, either we win or we die, and if you (Haftar and his forces) want to enter by force, we will not allow that to happen, and hopefully we’ll be victorious, “said Abdulaziz, a pro GNA fighter.
According to non-hospital sources in Tripoli, at least six people, were injured last Sunday in an air raid against an equestrian centre near the Libyan capital.
In the face of these repeated attacks against “civilian targets”, the GNA again called for the international community to “dispatch a fact-finding mission” to “document these grave violations” and to inscribe Marshal Haftar “on the list of international sanctions “.
