on Monday, forces of the national consensus Government (NTC) of Libya under the leadership of Faiz Zarraga announced the establishment of full control over the airbase El Watya, which until recently were the troops of the LNA field Marshal the Haftarot. Later a source in the LDF said that the retreat of the army of Haftarot from the base of the El Watia is a “tactical step,” adding that in El Vatii happened a fierce battle.

Since early may, acting on the side of the NTC, the formation sought to dislodge the troops of the LNA of the strategically important base El Watya, located 100 km South West from Tripoli. During this period the armed forces of the NTC tried three times to take it by storm. The last attack was made about a week ago. Until recently, however, the LDF was able to defend its position.
