The LNA operations are focused on liberating the area of terrorists affiliated with Tripoli’s UN-US-instated government of accord.

The LNA has made major gains in Benghazi.  Monday the LNA launched a fresh offensive in the Guwarsha and Ganfouda districts, carrying out air strikes followed by ground assaults.

War planes could still be heard over Benghazi on Wednesday morning, and ambulances ferrying casualties raced through the streets. Roads were shut leading to western parts of the city where clashes continued.

Although casualty figures are not yet available  many terrorists have been killed.
