The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BENGHAZI – The Spokesman of the Libyan National Army (LNA) said that LNA General Command deals with all countries that offer effective solutions to the Libyan crisis away from the control of militias and mercenaries, and stipulated the dissolution of militias and the removal of Syrian mercenaries and Turkish advisers, stressing that the international parties have been unable to rightly diagnose the crisis.
LNA General Command was fully involved in all calls for discussing a solution to the crisis, but the Head of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) Fayez Al-Sarraj’s compliance with the orders of Turkey and Qatar and his lack of a vision of the solution obstructed those efforts, al-Mismary indicated during a video conference with Egyptian journalists on Tuesday.
Al-Mesmari added that LNA monitored the movement of elements from the terrorist Nusra Front, Harasuddin and members of the Muslim Brotherhood group to Libya.”
Al-Mesmari also stressed that LNA General Command refuses establishing any military bases in Libya so that Libya would not turn into an arena for conflicts.
Speaking about the groups controlling the city of Gharyan, al-Mesmari said, “The groups in the city of Gharyan in the west of the country are terrorist.”
Al-Mesmari stressed that there is no truth to the existence of differences between LNA General Command and the Presidency of the House of Representatives (HoR), pointing out that Field Marshal Haftar’s announcement of ending the political agreement in Skhirat does not mean dissolving HoR.
Speaking about the field situation, al-Mismari said that the LNA air force is conducting a direct survey in the entire Western Mountain region, adding that the LNA forces had responded to GNA militias attempts to advance for eight days at all battle axes, where LNA forces were able to eliminate a large number of terrorists during the past week.
“Al-Mesmari pointed out that LNA is a national army fighting for peace and stability and managed to eliminate a large number of terrorists during attempts to move south of the country, which has become a focus of ISIS terrorist organization.
Al-Mesmari mentioned the Turkish invasion to which Libya is subjected, saying: “The Turkish regime seeks to plunder Libyan wealth and control navigation in the Mediterranean region.”
Al-Mismari praised during the conference the position of the Egyptian leadership and President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, who conveyed the reality of what is happening in Libya to all regional and international parties, noting that the most successful meetings of the Libyan military were in Egypt, where it addressed many problems, but he suggested that all military meetings in Geneva would fail.
