The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TRIPOLI – The Seventh Infantry Brigade announced Sunday its continuation of what it described as “the process of cleansing Tripoli” of the militias, after participating in yesterday’s meeting in the city of Zawia under the auspices of UN Special Envoy to Libya, Ghassan Salame, on the security situation in Tripoli.
In return, the Brigade welcomed all solutions, including peaceful ones, since they lead to the fulfillment of the demand of the Libyan people, which is the removal of militias from Tripoli.
“We reassure all Libyans that the 7th Infantry Brigade will not leave Tripoli and Libya to suffer the woes as a result of the militias’ control over the city, and confirm that we are continuing the process of cleansing Tripoli of these militias,” the Brigade Media Office said.
“As we sit at the negotiating table with these militias and other parties, we are working hard to achieve the goal of the operation with minimal losses. The Military is patient, but its patience has limitations,” The Media Office added.
The parties to conflict agreed in Tripoli on Sunday, following a meeting under the auspices of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations in Libya, Gassan Salame, to freeze the movement of forces of armed groups in Tripoli, establish a monitoring mechanism, verify the stabilization of the cease-fire, and to set a plan for the withdrawal of armed groups from sovereign sites and vital installations and replacing them with regular forces.
