In the morning of April 13, warplanes of the Libyan Air Force (LNA) bombed several ammo depots of forces loyal to the Government of National Accord (GNA) in the towns of Tajoura and Wadi al-Ra’bi east and southeast of the country’s capital Tripoli.
“Thanks to God, the targets were hit with high accuracy … This will weaken the enemy’s supplies and its collapsing capabilities,” the Libyan National Army (LNA) media office said in a press release.
The Libyan News Observatory outlet released photos showing black smoke raising from the GNA’s ammo depots after the LNA airstrikes.
Few hours before the airstrikes, LNA units began advancing in Wadi al-Ra’bi’s vicinity in an attempt to get control of a bridge leading to Tripoli’s city center. The army managed to reach the bridge. However, heavy clashes are still ongoing there.
Pro-LGNA forces were able to slow down the LNA advance over the last few days. However, this situation will not likely continue for long, as GNA forces’ loses are on the raise.
