Heavy clashes have been reported and confirmed in the Al-Sabiah aream south of Tripoli, between the forces of the Government of National Accord (GNA) and the forces of the General Command (LNA).

The spokesman for the GNA's 'Volcano of Anger' operation, Mustafa Al-Maji, tells Alwasats: " Our forces are making significant progress are working to control the area," explaining that the forces took control of vital facilities such as the local hospital and the Institute of Aviation in downtown.

He stressed that his forces are advancing cautiously because there are residential neighborhoods in the region.

Meanwhile, the Media Center for the Karama Operations Room of the LNA, said on its Facebook page that the General Command forces repelled an attack by GNA forces attempting "to advance towards Al-Sabiah and causing them losses in equipment and personnel."

Clashes erupted between the LNA and GNA on the fourth of April, south of Tripoli, and resulted in the deaths of 1048, with 5558 wounded.
