Libya's Tripoli forces deal one more great blow to Haftar militias by taking back another town

Forces allied with the U.N.-supported government in Libya's capital said Friday they have retaken another key western town from rivals behind a year-long offensive on Tripoli. The development is yet another illustration of how Turkey's support for the Tripoli government has turned the tide of war in the oil-rich country.

According to Mohamed Gnono, the spokesman for the Tripoli-allied forces, the Turkey-backed units have entered the town of Tarhouna, 72 kilometers (45 miles) southeast of Tripoli.
