Heavy battles continue to rage in Tripoli as rival factions duel for control of the Libyan capital, according to a report by RT. The assault on the UN-backed government is led by a Misrata commander whose success in the anti-Gadaffi rebellion was enabled by the 2011 NATO intervention. Factions consisting of militias loyal to the self-proclaimed National Salvation Government (GNC) and forces loyal to the internationally-recognized Presidential Council (PC) which presides over the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) continued to skirmish. The Libya Herald reports fierce fighting erupted on Friday after the GNC’s militia’s top commander, Salah Badi, launched an attack on the GNA-allied Central Security militia in an attempt to recapture parts of the capital.
