Libyan Government Says It Accepts UN-Proposed Truce in Tripoli

CAIRO – Libyan UN-supported government says it has accepted a cease-fire proposed by the UN aimed at halting combat in the capital, Tripoli, during the upcoming holiday of Eid Al-Adh, Arab News reported Saturday.
Militias allied with the Tripoli-based government have been fighting since April against a military offensive to take the capital by the self-styled Libyan National Army.
A spokesman for LNA did not answer phone calls seeking comment on Saturday.
The UN envoy for Libya, Ghassan Salame, had proposed a multi-day truce for the Eid holiday, which begins Sunday.
Fighting for Tripoli has killed over 1,100 people, mostly combatants, and has displaced more than 100,000 civilians.
