The self-styled Libyan National Army has launched airstrikes on Tripoli

The self-styled Libyan National Army led by General Khalifa Haftar have launched air strikes on Tripoli in a bid to gain control of Libya's capital.

This comes as the government agreed to negotiate with General Haftar on a ceasefire and insist on the withdrawal of troops to the east of the country.

BBC Arabic correspondent Feras Kilani monitored the situation on the ground in the capital and southern fronts, and prepared this exclusive report from there.
