The Libyan Army forces under the command of the Government of National Accord (GNA) said it had seized a major supply line for Khalifa Haftar's forces used to transfer fighters and military equipment to Tarhouna and then to south Tripoli.

The media office of Volcano of Rage Operation said GNA forces had seized 350 km long road between south and west Libya used by Haftar's forces to prop up their war on Tripoli with either mercenaries, fighters or military equipment and fuel.

The line starts from Al-Shuwairif town in northern Sabha and then goes in three directions toward Nessma, Marssit and Garyat towns as it then goes toward Bani Walid, Tarhouna and southern Tripoli.

The announcement comes as a potential military operation to seize Sirte and Jufra is underway, while Haftar's forces and his supporters are pushing for a resumption of political process to reach a ceasefire before the GNA's control of the two strategic cities.

Egypt, France and UAE are ramping up their diplomatic efforts to push for the ceasefire, as Egypt's Abdel Fattah El Sisi talked to US President Donald Trump to inform him of his country's Cairo Declaration initiative.
