Units of Haftar's Libyan National Army moving towards Sirte to attack the Islamic State
The Libya Herald reports that two groups from the Libyan National Army (LNA) are moving towards the Islamic State (IS) stronghold of Sirte from both the southwest and the east.
|From the west a Misratan brigade is moving eastwards towards the 200 kilometer long stretch along the coast controlled by IS. An army source told the Herald that more than a thousand men had left Ghabghab, which is the main army base at Marj, the headquarters of commander-in-chief Khalifa Haftar. The group was said to be heading for Sirte. The group probably is using some of the many vehicles and ammunition that Haftar recently received.|
