The Libyan Army under the command of the Government of National Accord (GNA) has seized full control of Tripoli International Airport after heavy clashes since Wednesday morning, spokesman Mohammed Gununu announced.

Gununu said that the Libyan Army forces were chasing away fleeing Haftar's forces who were barricaded inside Tripoli International Airport as they advance on Qasir Benghashir onwards since Haftar's forces left their positions in Qasir Benghashir, Sabea and Souq Al-Khamis, fleeing to Tarhouna and Bani Walid.

Earlier Wednesday, GNA forces also seized control of Qasir Benghashir roundabout, Al-Ahyaa Al-Bariya and Kazirma, let alone the control of GNA forces over Khallatat, Khalla, and Yarmouk Camp, which all were positions for Haftar's forces, according to Volcano of Rage Operation sources, who added that they had advanced on Souq Al-Ahad Brigade to eliminate Haftar's forces from southern Tripoli.

The districts in south Tripoli have been falling in the hands of GNA forces piecemeal over the last two weeks after months of fighting and hundreds of casualties due to a war started by Haftar and his foreign mercenaries - Russian Wagner Group fighters who pulled out lately, Janjaweed and others - to seize control of Tripoli.
