Tank Mounted GoPro Footage During Clashes in Tripoli

A video of a Libyan National Army (LNA) tank 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 GoPro mounted on an LNA tank captures the fighting in Libya as it rolls through a purported south Tripoli suburb held by Government of National Accord (GNA) troops. The LNA tankers maneuver forward into the increasingly congested neighborhood on an apparently solo assault, taking sporadic fire from the unseen defenders and stopping occasionally to blast a suspected enemy position with their main gun. Allegedly supported by a drone providing aerial intelligence, the LNA tank continues to advance deeper into the neighborhood largely unopposed.
