Fighters loyal to the internationally recognized Libyan government based in Tobruk are seen in this video scouting the Al-Lethi neighborhood of Benghazi, less than one hundred meters from what they say are ISIS outposts. Soldiers snake between deserted and damaged civilian houses, searching for Islamist militants.
Fighting between Islamist militias and forces loyal to Lt. General Khalifa Haftar has ravaged the Libyan city of Benghazi, even though fighting has diminished. Reports indicate that Haftar's forces currently have the upper hand over the Islamist Libya Dawn military coalition. According to a Transterra Media contributor, significant casualties have put the local hospital under pressure to provide adequate medial care as supplies are thinning out.
