Highlights of LNA Spokesman press conference

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

BENGHAZI – What was found in the investigations with the Egyptian terrorist Hisham Ashmawi threatens international security and stability, said the Spokesman of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Major General Ahmad al-Mismari, adding, we found that terrorism in Libya is linked to terrorism in other countries.

Ashmawi’s extradition to the Egyptian authorities was fulfilled after all legal conditions were met; in the presence of the Egyptian intelligence chief, al-Mismari confirmed during a press conference in Benghazi on Wednesday, adding that Ashmawi was specialized in training terrorists on street fight.

LNA had killed and arrested many Arab and non-Arab terrorists in Libya during the war on terrorism, including the dangerous and internationally wanted terrorist, who was recruited by the Turkish Intelligence, Maree Abdel Fattah Zoghbiya, LNA Spokesman pointed out.

LNA has tens of thousands of documents for terrorists who may be now in Tripoli or Turkey or have been eliminated by LNA, al-Mismari explained.

Internationally wanted terrorists were fighting with the militias allied with the Tripoli-based Government National Accord (GNA); some of them had participated in killing of the American English teacher in Benghazi and the American Ambassador in Libya Chris Stevens, who was killed in Benghazi too in 2012.

“We defend international peace and security, we defend Libya, and we challenge Ghassan Salame, UN envoy to Libya, to show us one internationally wanted soldier in the LNA forces,” the Spokesman said..

Al-Sarraj, Head of GNA, is no longer a partner in peace and is a terrorist who fought LNA, al-Massmari added.
