Unconfirmed footage reportedly out of Libya shows American and Italian Mercenaries defending Tripoli in support of GNA forces against General Haftar’s advance on the city in April 2019.
The men can be seen and heard formulating a hasty defense plan and calling out likely avenues of approach and contingencies.
Haftar, a rogue general and leader of the Libyan National Army (LNA), has captured the eastern and southern parts of the nation. He has done well in crushing the various jihadi militias he has faced. He claims to want a secular future for Libya and also claims that the current GNA leadership he opposes is backed by the Muslim brotherhood.
French President Macron is currently attempting to facilitate an internationally supervised ceasefire.
