On June 6, Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi announced a new initiative for Libya proposing an elected leadership council and a ceasefire starting on June 8.

During the announcement, the Egyptian president was flanked by the commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Khalifa Haftar. LNA forces are now on retreat unders strikes of forces of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), which is directly supported by the Turkish military.

It’s highly likely that Turkey and its proxies will see a new peaceful initiative as a sign of weaknesses of the LNA and its backers. Therefore, it’s possible that GNA forces will try to capture the port city of Sirte and will back to negotiations only if this plan fails.
