A group of fighters belonging to the Libyan National Army (LNA) commanded by General Khalifa Haftar continued to patrol the Sirte front line on Saturday ahead of the Libya Peace Conference in Berlin.

Footage filmed at the outskirts of the Mediterranean city shows fighters on top of military vehicles as they patrol the area and fire shots.

“Today we are at a certain point. We are advancing. I would like to carry the good news for our people that the army is steadily marching to liberate Libya, whether in west of Tripoli or in Sirte. We are steadily marching under a wise leadership. We will either liberate this land so that we would have a dignified life in it or that we will honourably die here, but having militias ruling us and foreigners coming to us is unacceptable for us as Libyans”, said one of the fighters.

“We would not let our people down, and hopefully we, ourselves, will enter every region. We are fighting as people and as army, not only as army”, he added.

The leader of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Haftar, is expected to arrive in the German capital on Sunday and join the head of Tripoli’s UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), Fayez al-Sarraj at a peace conference that will seek to achieve stability in the region.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
