Clashes intensify in besieged TripoliTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The eastern forces of Haftar's Libya National Army (LNA) launched an assault on Tripoli in early April and are bogged down in southern suburbs by fighters loyal to the UN-backed government of Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj.

Libya is on the brink of a civil war that could "lead to the permanent division of the country," a top UN official warned the Security Council on Tuesday as he urged the world body to stop countries that were fueling the conflict with weapons.

Fighting in the battle for Tripoli has killed at least 510 people, forced 75,000 out of their homes, trapped thousands of migrants in detention centers and flattened some suburbs, according to the United Nations.
