Fighting in Libya escalated on Thursday after the commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Khalifa Haftar, launched an offensive to retake Tripoli, which is controlled by the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA).

AFRICOM led a 2016 bombardment campaign to dislodge Daesh* elements in the country and has maintained a special operations mission there that assists the GNA in counter-terrorism efforts.

Webmaster's Commentary:

And here is a final update, from sputnik.com:

Situation in Libya Amid Haftar's Army Air Operation Over Tripoli

The article goes on to state:

"Tensions in war-torn Libya have escalated since 4 April, after the Libyan National Army, led by Khalifa Haftar, started an offensive aimed at seizing Tripoli from the UN-recognised government. While making its way to Tripoli, the LNA captured several settlements; at the same time, the GNA's prime minister ordered troops to use force if necessary.

On Sunday, the Libyan National Army (LNA) commenced an aerial bombardment of the Libyan capital Tripoli, a top Libyan military source told Sputnik."

Folks, my heart is praying for the people of Libya, who just are desperately get out of harm's way, and just find in a place where they, and their families can just be safe, even for a little while.
