The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BENGHAZI – General commander of Libyan National Army, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, stated in a meeting on Monday with a delegation of sheikhs, dignitaries and tribal elders of the western and southern parts of Libya in the city of Benghazi; that his forces “will not remain indifferent to what is happening to citizens in terms of violations in Tripoli”.
The delegation called on Field Marshal Haftar, according to the Information Office of the General Command of the Armed Forces, to intervene to put an end to what is happening in the capital Tripoli, in addition to discussing some of the problems of the south. The delegation also congratulated the general commander on the army’s victory against terrorist groups in eastern Libya.
Tripoli recently witnessed violent clashes between rival militias all funded by the proposed Government of National Accord, which resulted in the killing of more than 100 people, while hundreds of others were wounded, displaced, or missing.
On the other hand, the Libyan National Army spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed al-Massmari said that LNA has nothing to do with the ongoing clashes between the militias in Tripoli, and that the army continues to fully secure all the areas under its control such as the entire region of Cyrenaica east of Libya, and large parts of the south and the Libyan west.
