Egypt's president meets Libyan commander Haftar in Cairo

Over 120 killed, nearly 600 wounded in Libya fighting: WHO

The current violence pits Haftar's self-styled Libyan National Army, which backs a rival government in the east of the country, against an array of militias that support the Tripoli administration.

The eastern-based army has been leading a military campaign against the government in the capital Tripoli since earlier this month, attempting to take over the city.

Haftar met with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi in Cairo on Sunday over the latest developments in war-torn Libya, the Egyptian presidency said in a statement.

Egypt President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is seen during a news conference at the Presidential Palace in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, April 11, 2019.

Haftar, who was exiled in the United States for two decades, returned to Libya in 2011 when the revolution erupted, commanding forces that eventually toppled dictator Muammar Qaddafi.

During the meeting, El-Sisi affirmed Egypt's support for the efforts to combat terrorism and extremist groups and militias in order to achieve security and stability for the Libyan citizen in all the country's territory to establish the foundations of a stable and sovereign civil state.

The meeting was attended by Egypt's intelligence chief Abbas Kamel.

The Libyan National Army (LNA) headed by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar has confirmed the loss of its warplane, noting that the aircraft could have been downed by the rival Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA). Egypt never publicly acknowledged it was offering material aid to Gen Haftar's LNA, although its jet-fighters have in the past occasionally bombed positions and facilities belonging to Islamic militants in eastern Libya. "No matter how obstinate one becomes, there is no solution except a political one".

Haftar has defied global calls to halt his battle against fighters loyal to the UN-backed Government of National Accord based in Tripoli.

The World Health Organization said 121 people have been killed in the fighting and another 561 have been wounded.

No other details were immediately available.

The front lines were mostly calm on Sunday morning but military sources said in the afternoon that an eastern Libyan warplane crashed in southern Tripoli.

While some pro-Haftar media had predicted a quick victory, Tripoli government forces have halted him about 11 km (7 miles) from the center near an airport that was largely destroyed in a previous bout of fighting five years ago.
