The battle around Tripoli has killed 75 people including 17 civilians according to the UN

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi, the new chairman of the African Union, at the 32nd African Union Summit, in Addis Ababa, February 10, 2019.

The self-styled Libyan National Army, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Hifter, launched a surprise offensive against Tripoli on April 5 and is battling rival militias loosely affiliated with a weak United Nations -backed government.

His move is the latest in a cycle of conflict and anarchy since the 2011 toppling of former dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Haftar backs a rival administration based in eastern Libya that refuses to recognise the UN-backed unity government led by Fayez al-Sarraj.

"The president (Sisi) affirmed Egypt's support in efforts to fight terrorism and extremist militias to achieve security and stability for Libyan citizens throughout the country", according to a statement by the Egyptian president's office.

The presidency released photos showing Haftar, dressed in a blue suit, sitting with Sisi and his head of intelligence Abbas Kamel.

"We need to get rid of militias and terrorist groups", Saleh said, whose Tobruk-based authority is allied to Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA) militia force.

United Nations envoy Ghassan Salame said a school was bombed in the town of Ain Zara, around 15 kilometres southeast of Tripoli, without saying who was responsible. "You've learned and tasted war".




Fighting near Tripoli has killed 121 people and wounded 561, the World Health Organization said on Sunday.

The fighting killed and injured hundreds of people, and forced thousands of civilians to flee their homes.

Fighting in recent days has been taking place on the outskirts of Tripoli as LNA forces have been bogged down by groups aligned with the Government of National Accord (GNA).

The "life goes on" attitude of some overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Tripoli may soon be in peril with the further escalation of clashes between factions in Libya, following reports that foreign governments will soon be sending support for military strongman Khalifa Haftar.

No other details were immediately available.

It is not clear whether Gen Haftar's surprise march on Tripoli was launched with the prior knowledge or the approval of the Egyptians.

Pro-government forces said they were "searching for the pilot", he added.
