The number of people killed in the armed conflict in the Libyan capital has reached 691, including 41 civilians, and 4012 wounded, including 135 civilians, according to a statement issued by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The battles raging south of the capital Tripoli since 4 April have pitted Libyan army forces under the General Command led by Marshal Khalifa Haftar and the forces of the Government of National Accord.

The head of Libya's Presidential Council in the Government of National Accord, Faiz Al-Sarraj, has announced a  political initiative to resolve the Libyan crisis, including the formation of a Libyan National Forum in coordination with the UN mission, which would have representation from all of Libya's regions.
