On April 6th, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army (LNA) reported that a Turkish unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) targeted a cargo plane, loaded with COVID-19 supplies.

A fuel tanker, that was transporting supplies to Western Libya in order to counter the COVID-19 crisis, was also reportedly targeted by Turkish UAV.

The Turkish information network presents these UAV strikes as such on military positions and units.

The LNA is continuing its push, carrying out strikes on positions of the Government of National Accord (GNA) east of Misrata, which is the stronghold of the GNA.

As of midday on April 6th, clashes are taking place between GNA, Turkish-deployed fighters from Syria on the one side and the LNA on the other Ain Zara, in southern Tripoli. Ain Zara continues being one of the most contested points in the fight.

Even in the very early hours on April 6th, there were clashes in and around Tripoli between the sides.

The LNA-affiliated media, furthermore, accuses the GNA of sending children to fight against the GNA.
