The Spokesman for the General Command of the Libyan Armed Forces, Major General Ahmad Al-Mesmari, said that the Western Operations Room had started the second phase of the "Battle of Tripoli" through infantry forces after the completion of the first phase.

Al-Mismari said during a press conference held on Monday evening, that LNA forces in the western theatre have begun to be integrated into secondary battle units, after they secured ground and identified the main and secondary positions of GNA forces.

He added that the LNA Airforce did not carry out any flights Monday, because of the high winds and dust, while also claiming that GNA forces flew over their air base without targetting LNA forces.
