HoR votes to ban Muslim Brotherhood, designates it ‘terrorist group’

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TOBRUK – The House of Representatives voted Tuesday on banning the Muslim Brotherhood and classifying it as a terrorist group.

This decision came based on the Muslim Brotherhood’s crimes against the Libyan National Army (LNA) and its incitement against the parliament, as well as its support for the armed militias in Tripoli.

Seventy members of the House voted on banning the group during a session held in the eastern city of Tobruk.

The Muslim Brotherhood group has been designated as a terrorist group in several country, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Russia.

The New York Times reported in late April that United States’ President, Donald Trump, is pushing to issue an order that would designate the Muslim Brotherhood a foreign terrorist organization.
