Libya’s Tripoli forces take key base from rivals

Forces aligned with Libya’s internationally recognized government took control of an air base south-west of Tripoli on Monday. Watiya air base has been an important strategic foothold for forces loyal to commander Khalifa Haftar (LNA), who launched an offensive to capture Tripoli in April 2019. In a statement, the LNA said its forces had withdrawn from the base as a tactical maneuver.
