According to reports from southern Tripoli, the GNA forces launched a number of attacks along the Al-Ramlah axis, resulting in heavy clashes with the Libyan National Army.
The reports said the GNA forces were able to achieve some progress along the southern Tripoli front, putting them within striking distance of the Tripoli International Airport near Al-Ramlah.
