The leader of the LNA Haftar ordered his forces to move in Tripoli on Thursday as UN Secretary-General. Antonio Guterres was in town to discuss the current crisis.
Gen Haftar spoke with Mr. Guterres in Benghazi on Friday and reportedly told him that his operation would not be stopped until his troops defeated "terrorism".
On Thursday, LNA forces took the city of Gharyan to 100km (62 miles) south of Tripoli.
There are now reports of troops taken to the airport of the capital, which has been closed since 2014 – although this is controversial.
Residents of Misrata east of Tripoli told Reuters that police from their city were sent to defend the capital.

What was the reaction?
In tweet, Mr Guterres said that he left Libya "with a heavy heart and deeply troubled" saying that he still hoped that there was a way to avoid a battle around the capital.
Later, the G7 responded to a military action statement calling for an end to hostilities.
"We strongly oppose any military action in Libya," the statement said, emphasizing its support for UN-led efforts to the elections, and calling on all countries to support the "stable stabilization of Libya." @UKinLibya
