UNSMIL warns of tampering with Tripoli security after Badi allusions

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has warned those trying to tamper with the security of Tripoli and its people and held them accountable for any harm that might be inflicted on people, especially among civilians.

The warning came after the allusions of Liwaa al-Sumoud Militia Commander , Salah Badi, on Sunday night, to enter Tripoli at the head of a heavily armed force under the pretext of lifting indignity and humiliation from its people and fighting corruption, at a time of continuing efforts to restore calm and implement the cease-fire agreement.

“There is no justification for wasting a single drop of blood under any slogan,” UNSMIL said. The mission called on everyone to avoid bloodshed, abolish mobilization and allow neutral mediators.

According to identical reports, clashes renewed in Khallet al-Furjan between the Seventh Brigade and the Tripoli Brigades.

It is noteworthy that Badi had led a terrorist operation called “Dawn of Libya” on 13 July 2014, aimed at controlling Tripoli airport.

At that time, his militia received the support of some members of the General National Congress, including its president, Nuri Abu Sahmein, who admitted his support for the terrorist groups in Benghazi against the Libyan National Army (LNA).

The attack, in which Badi participated, resulted in burning main fuel reservoirs at Tripoli Airport Road, destroying the Airport, including a number of civil aircraft belonging to some Libyan airlines, in addition to multiple deaths and injuries.
