Units of the Libyan National Army (LNA) have re-entered the area of al-Sawani southwest of the Libyan capital, Tripoli. By this advance and the recent success in the Tripoli International Airport area, the LNA de-facto reversed all gains achieved by militias loyal to the Government of National Accord as a result of the April 10 counter-attack.
If the LNA appears to be capable of securing these positions, it would be able to move further along the road heading from al-Sawani to Tripoli. This would create an additional pressure of pro-GNA forces that are now resisting to the LNA advance in the area of Ain Zara. In the positive scenario for the LNA, this situation may lead to a full collapse of the GNA defense on this part of the frontline.
