Libya, Janzur
April 8, 2019 at 08:31 GMT +00:00 · Published

Footage emerged on social media on Sunday, showing a US vessel leaving the Libyan coast at Palm City in Janzur, in a possible move due to growing security concerns in the country.

According to an official statement released by US Africa Command (AFRICOM), the US troops were relocated following the deteriorating security situation, which was reportedly described as increasingly complex and unpredictable.

The move takes place as tensions are rising around Tripoli, with Field Marshall Khalifa Haftar‘s Libyan National Army (LNA) leading a military assault on the capital, which is controlled by the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA).

It is not clear where and for how long the US troops were relocating, and details on the number of troops withdrawn and still in the country were not provided.
