CAIRO – 3 June 2020: A Turkish cargo ship left Istanbul and arrived at Misurata carrying military vehicles and weapons on Tuesday, according to the Libyan National Army Spokesperson Ahmed al-Mesmary.

On June 1, Mesmary announced the restoration of Alasabaa town, western Tripoli, from militias affiliated to the Government of National Accord (GNA) which had overtaken the town on May 21.

Furthermore, the LNA announced on May 31 killing three field commanders of the militias protecting the Government of National Accord (GNA) southern Tripoli in clashes.

On May 29, Commander of LNA's Western District Mabrouk al-Ghazwi announced the death of 60 and the injury of 100 militants as they attempted to attack concentrations of the Libyan Armed Forces southern Tripoli.

The commander stated that at least 1,500 Syrian mercenaries were involved in the attack, according to the confessions of a captive.
