The Address | Benghazi – Libya

LIBYA – Spokesperson of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Maj. Gen. Ahmed Al-Mesmari said that the LNA General Command “hoped that Fayez al-Sarraj, the head of the Presidential Council would stand at least neutral so that we would all cooperate in getting rid of the militias and organized crime groups in Tripoli, and thus there would be a basis for any political civil action.”

Al-Mesmari, in a press briefing today said: “The General Command was hoping that al-Sarraj would take a patriotic and courageous stance to save the political track and participate in the success of the upcoming Ghadames National Conference.”

“The militias that control Tripoli will not allow the people of Tripoli to vote and freely express their opinions in any upcoming elections, and will not allow them to raise any signs contrary to the political Islam views, or organize any peaceful gathering.” He added.
