A video of LNA troops running and gunning through a Tripoli neighborhood has been released. Fighting in the city appears to continue despite growing international pressure to cease hostilities.

A camera mounted on a Libyan National Army (LNA) armored vehicle captures the fighting as it rolls through a purported Tripoli suburb held by Government of National Accord (GNA) troops. The LNA fighters maneuver around the tight and winding streets with a mobile element comprised of several armored trucks taking sporadic fire from the unseen defenders. The LNA troops stop at various points to claim several shot up SUV’s abandoned on the roadside and suppress enemy positions. However, it’s unclear if these were trucks left by GNA or LNA forces.
