Libya fighting: Clashes near Tripoli’s old airport

There has been renewed fighting on the outskirts of Tripoli between forces battling for the capital.

Fifty days of fighting between renegade military commander Khalifa Haftar‘s forces and others loyal to the UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA) have taken a toll, nearly 500 people have been killed, more than 1,400 wounded, and about 70,000 forced from their homes.

UN-recognised government forces carried out air raids, as they pushed back against fighters loyal to Haftar.
