On April 13th, the Government of National Accord’s (GNA) forces appear to be pushing back against Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army (LNA).
The GNA capture an LNA compound west of Tripoli, near Al Zawiyah, towards Sabratha.


With the support of Turkish UAVs, the push is on-going, while in the east, where the battle is on-going for the road south of Misrata, 3 Turkish unmanned aircraft were downed.


The UAVs were downed in a successful push west of Sirte, carried out by the LNA.


In the fighting a LNA Mi-35 attack helicopter was downed by GNA forces.


Three LNA soldiers were killed as a result.


It is unclear what downed it, but Turkish HISAN air defense systems were actually deployed not far from this area, in Misrata. The helicopter crash area is located almost on the border of the regions controlled by the LNA and GNA forces.
The LNA spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed al-Mesmari claimed that the Turkish UAVs are predominantly targeting medical and food supply convoys.
At the same time, Turkish aircraft continues airlifting fighters to Misrata and Tripoli each day.
He said that despite the UN Security Council embargo for weapons deliveries, Turkey continued its usual shipments to the GNA.


Finally, on April 5th, there were reports of a An-26/32 cargo plane being destroyed in a GNA airstrike, near Tarhuna.
It would appear that the Tarhuna airstrip itself and its facilities are undamanged.
