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.

    I observed Tripoli based TV channel “Libya al Watanyia” is airing only loop programs (mostly songs). I think they fear bombing and nobody is inside the TV building. They may still remember 2011 when Nato bombings set the headquarters of (then) Aljamahiryia TV defunct.

      It will be interesting what will happen to the channel and its content, when (if) LNA forces take over the TV building. Its located at the coast, few kilometers east of Dat El Imad towers. There is also another (new) TV building in Tripoli center. In Gaddafi era it contained a new channel which name i forgot. The channel was the home of the infamous Hala Misrati (anchorwoman which brandished a gun in support for Gaddafi).

      What do the people in Tripoli think about all this? Are they pro-GNA or do they want the LNA to take over?

        I dont know my friend. But i remember 2011 when there were huge pro-Gaddafi protests. Today the crowds in Tripoli seem to be way not so big.

          I’m guessing the Libyans are getting pretty damn tired of war by now. And tired of foreigners running around their country promoting those wars.
