By Libya Herald reporters.
Tripoli, 30 June 2015:
Reports that Zintan and Zuwara have reached a peace deal appear to be premature. A . . .[restrict]source close to the talks between the elders of the two towns said agreement was at least “two or three days away”.
In what would be the latest in a series of local peace deals that appears to be acquiring a momentum unrelated to the UNSMIL dialogue, Zintan and Zuwara are exploring a peace deal which would involve an exchange of prisoners and an agreement not to impinge on each other’s perceived territory.
However, the Libya Herald understands that some Zuwara units in Janzour are unhappy with the proposals. Equally, Libyan army commanders have expressed reservations.
If the Amazigh centred on Zuwara were to cut a deal with Zintan, it would be the a sign that they were distancing themselves from Libya Dawn. [/restrict]
