Benghazi saw further fighting this week, although on a smaller scale than in recent weeks. There were clashes in the Qawarsha neighbourhood on 14 June while the LNA announced that its Special Forces had taken control of the Mehesh Hesh area. However, overall there has been no significant shift in the balance of power and several parts of the city remain contested.
LNA forces were able to take advantage of the in-fighting between IS and other militant groups in Derna this week to finally make some advances. The LNA announced that it had taken control of key strategic sites in the Al-Najeel valley in Ain Mara as well as the Kursa area.
