The forces of the National Accord Government in Libya announced today that their aircraft targeted three fuel cars south of the city of Bani Walid, located south of the capital, Tripoli, as well as a store of ammunition and armed cars in the vicinity of the city of Sirte, east of the capital.
And the operation, "Berkan Al-Fathi" on its Facebook page, added that an Al-Wefaq government plane bombed three other fuel tankers south of Bani Walid city, which was on its way to supply Haftar forces stationed south of the capital.
Also, Al-Wefaq forces planes targeted ten armed cars belonging to the Haftar forces and an ammunition storehouse in the south of Al-Washka area, east of Misurata.
Although Haftar's forces announced on March 21 the approval of a humanitarian truce called by the United Nations in order to focus on anti-Corona efforts, the Haftar militants continued to violate the truce by bombing various locations in the capital.
In response, the Al-Wefaq government, which is internationally recognized, launched Operation Peace Storm on March 25.
In this context, the Anatolia Agency reported today that two civilians were killed and another person was wounded in the shelling of Haftar forces, which targeted the Mitiga International Airport in the capital with missiles.
The Facebook page of the Operation Anger Volcano said that the missile row caused extensive damage to citizens ’homes.
On the other hand, the spokesman for the United Nations Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric, said that "the escalation of violence in and around Tripoli appears to be coming from the Libyan National Army (in reference to Haftar's forces), but it is important that all parties respect the ceasefire" .
A year has passed
Today's developments come almost a year after Haftar launched an attack on April 4, 2019, in order to control Tripoli under the pretext of fighting terrorist groups. The battles between Haftar's forces and the Al-Wefaq government have left hundreds dead and more than 150,000 displaced.
The Haftar attack began in conjunction with the visit of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, to Libya, and days after the "National Conference" that the United Nations had prepared for, and called for the development of a political road map to get the country out of its crisis.
