According to Reuters, and despite that all attending international actors agreed to promote the ceasefire and respect the UN arms embargo on Libya, there are numerous reports of multiple violations over the past 10 days. UNSMIL, the UN mission in Libya has reported cargo and other flights landing in both western and eastern Libyan airports, transporting arms, armored vehicles, military advisers and even fighters. The UAE and Egypt seem to be behind the violations supporting the LNA, while Turkey is behind the violations supporting the GNA in the west.
Officials from both sides confirmed that fighting had erupted as of Sunday, as LNA forces advanced on Misrata. GNA sources confirmed clashes were taking place outside of Abugrein, after already taking control of Qaddaheya and Wadi Zamzan en route. Misrata is Libya's second largest city and most important GNA militia stronghold. Analyst Jalel Harchaoui suggested this might be a tactic to draw the GNA's Misratan militias from defending Tripoli to help defend Misrata, and give Haftar a greater chance at securing Tripoli and finishing the war.
