Forces allied to eastern Libyan military take over checkpoint west of Tripoli: resident

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Forces allied to eastern Libyan forces on Thursday took over a checkpoint west of Tripoli, a resident and a video showed, part of an offensive on the Libyan capital home to the internationally recognized government.

The forces arrived at an area called “27 gate,” some 27 km (17 miles) west of Tripoli, residents said.
