Libya’s UN-backed gov’t forces advance against east-based army in Tripoli


TRIPOLI, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) — Forces of the UN-backed Libyan government on Saturday announced an advance against the rival east-based army in southern Tripoli.

According to the information office of the UN-backed government’s forces, two tanks and an armored vehicle of the east-based army were destroyed.
