Inhabitants of Libya’s capital Tripoli protested against the military campaign led by Libyan National Army (LNA) commander Khalifa Haftar in Martyr’s Square on Friday.

The group brought homemade signs and waved Libyan flags to indicate their support for the Government of National Accord (GNA), as the battle for Tripoli rages on.

One protester accused countries supporting Haftar and the LNA of standing against “our revolution.”

The LNA, which controls eastern Libya, is aiming to take over territory from the UN-backed GNA, including the capital Tripoli. The country has been split between the two rivals since 2014. Haftar’s efforts to capture Tripoli have met resistance from local armed groups.
