The Libyan National Army (LNA), of Khalifa Haftar, has shot down a military plane loyal to the Tripoli Government of National Accord (GNA) led by Fayez al-Sarraj, Sky News Arabia reported, referencing its own source.

According to reports, the plane was shot down in the area of Al-Hir, south of Tripoli. The LNA’s forces have previously destroyed GNA aircraft, as well as planes belonging to group allied to it.

The incident comes a day after Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar reportedly ordered the LNA forces to chase and destroy enemy troops.

​On 4 April, the Libyan National Army’s (LNA) launched an offensive on Tripoli, which is controlled by the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA). Two days later the GNA announced a counteroffensive dubbed “Volcano of Rage”.

More than 430 people have been killed and more than 2,000 have been injured since the beginning of the offensive on Tripoli, according to the World Health Organisation.

Since the overthrow and killing of Libya’s long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 the coutry has been divided into two parts, the internationally recognised and GNA headed by Fayez Sarraj in Tripoli and a parallel administration allied to Haftar in the east of the country.

What is interesting is that Haftar seems backed at the same time by Egypt, Russia and USA, maybe even several EU powers while GNA seems to have been rigged by the Ikhwan and totally lost western support.
