The Libyan National Army have captured a South Korean cargo ship with 5107 vehicles on board bound for ISIS controlled of Libya’s third largest city of Misrata.

Libya is caught up in a conflict between two rival governments – one internationally recognized, and the other self-declared after its forces took over Tripoli last year.

Both are backed by loose coalitions of armed groups who helped oust Muammar Gaddafi four years ago.

The Libyan National Army is the national armed force of Libya, comprising the ground army, the air force and the navy. It was established by the Libyan government after the first Libyan civil war, as Libya’s previous national army was defeated by the uprising and disbanded.
