Sources from inside Sirte confirmed that forces of the Libyan National Army's (LNA) General Command entered Abu Hadi, the Third residential district, and the University of Sirte district.

The same sources said that clashes are taking place in the Abu Zahia area, east of Sirte, between forces affiliated with the Government of National Accord (GNA) and the LNA, after the latter managed to take control of al-Sultan, Qardabiya, al-Arba'een, and al-Khorawah areas, east of Sirte.

Earlier, the spokesman for the Sirte Protection and Security Force, Taha Hadid, said that the force was engaged with the General Command forces.

Residents contacted by Alwasat said that "the roads are closed east of the city, specifically at the Abu Zahia area (20 km from the city center) and in the south of Sirte, in anticipation of any developments."
