Tripoli repulses attack by Haftar forces in Libya
In April, Haftar's forces launched a military campaign to capture Tripoli from the internationally recognized government.
GNA military spokesman Mohammed Kanunu said in a statement late on Dec. 30 that they repulsed an attack from the Haftar forces backed by armored vehicles.
Germany, with the support of the international organizations, is seeking to bring together countries concerned with Libya at an international conference in Berlin in an attempt to find a political solution to the conflict.
Since the ouster and death of ruler Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, two seats of power have emerged in Libya: one in eastern Libya supported mainly by Egypt and the UAE, and the GNA in Tripoli, which enjoys UN and international recognition.
