BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Libyan National Army (LNA), led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, announced on Wednesday, that the area extending from Wadi Jarif to the Al-Washaka will be considered a “military operations area.”

In a statement, the LNA called on all citizens not to be in this area while taking care and caution, as they prepare to launch a big attack against the Turkish-backed Government of National Accord (GNA).

This announcement comes in light of the GNA pushing military reinforcements to the Al-Hilal oil region east of Sirte.

Despite the fact that the field situation in Libya appears fixed on certain lines, observers expected that the coming confrontation will revolve around controlling energy sources in the eastern part of the country.

Most recently, the Government of National Accord attempted to capture the strategic city of Sirte; however, they were unsuccessful after fierce battle with the Libyan National Army.
