Forces of the Libyan National Army (LNA) led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar have been developing their offensive on the Libyan capital of Tripoli.
Over the past few days, the LNA has repelled several counter-attacks from forces loyal to the Government of National Accord (GNA) in the area of Tripoli International Airport.
At the same time, according to pro-LNA sources. the LNA has advanced in the area of Wadi al-Rabieh capturing the village of Zatarna. Several pro-GNA fighters have been reportedly killed in the area.
Despite this achievement, the LNA push towards Tripoli has de-facto stalled. The LNA leadership is currently deploying additional equipment and artillery units to strengthen its assault force. In the event of success, fresh reinforcements should allow the LNA to shorten frontline in some areas and to continue pushing towards the southern gate of Tripoli.
Currently, the LNA chances to fully isolate the GNA stronghold in the nearest future are low.
