The Ministry of Defence of the Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA) said it will continue in its moves to recapture the eastern city of Sirte from the forces of renegade General Khalifa Haftar despite the warning of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi that the city represents a “red line” for his country.“No red lines can hinder the progress of our forces’ advancing towards Sirte,” said Salah Al-Din Al–Namroush, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Defence, in an interview published by the Anadolu Agency yesterday.Al–Namroush stressed that the GNA’s objective is to defeat Haftar’s Libyan National Army and take control of the entire city located 450 kilometres east of the capital Tripoli.He continued: “The GNA’s forces are at the gates of Sirte, and the liberation process has not been delayed. Our forces are doing some preparations on the outskirts of the city.”
