Libyan National Army Commander, Marshal Khalifa Haftar, declared "zero hour" for all military units in Tripoli and urged his forces to advance towards the center of Tripoli on Thursday in what he said would be the “final battle” for the capital.

Haftar launched an offensive in April to try to take control of Tripoli which stalled on the outskirts of the city.

“Today we announce the decisive battle and the advancement towards the heart of the capital to set it free ...advance now our heroes,” Haftar said in a speech broadcast on Al Arabiya TV
