Killed Since Fighting Broke out in Libya

15 Avril, 2019, 04:53 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Haftar's forces, which control swathes of the country's east, launched an offensive earlier this month to take the Libyan capital, defying worldwide calls to halt their battle against fighters loyal to the UN-backed Government of National Accord based in Tripoli.

Al Jazeera's Mahmoud Abdelwahed, reporting from Tripoli, said LNA sources confirmed one of the forces' fighter jets was shot down but added the pilot had "escaped" after using a parachute to eject from the unit.

No other details were immediately available.

Sissi has been an ardent supporter of Haftar's forces, which control swaths of eastern Libya and launched an offensive on April 4 to take the capital.

The army, led by General Khalifa Haftar, is allied with the eastern-based government, as the country is politically divided between western and eastern governments.

Haftar's push on the capital threatens to further destabilise the oil-rich country, however, and reignite a full-blown civil war.

Both sides have been accused of targeting civilians, the Daily Sabah reported.

The United Nations' office for humanitarian affairs said more than 13,500 people had been displaced by the clashes, while more than 900 residents are living in shelters.

The meeting was scheduled to bring Haftar and al-Serraj together in the southwestern town of Ghadames on April 14-16.

Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Sunday met in Cairo with Khalifa Haftar, the commander of eastern-based Libyan forces, who is under worldwide pressure to halt an advance on the capital Tripoli.

In a brief statement, Egypt's presidential palace said that during the talks Mr Sisi emphasised Egypt's support for "combating terrorism and extremist groups and militias to restore peace and stability for Libyan citizens across their country".

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

Libya has been a war-torn country since the death of its leader Muammar Gaddafi in October 2011. Egypt never publicly acknowledged it was offering material aid to Gen Haftar's LNA, although its jet-fighters have in the past occasionally bombed positions and facilities belonging to Islamic militants in eastern Libya. "No matter how obstinate one becomes, there is no solution except a political one", Ghassan Salame said in a Twitter post.
