Qatar, Sudan, Turkey accused of supporting terrorism in Libya
Tripoli (Libya): Libyan military spokesman Ahmed al-Mesmari on Tuesday accused Qatar, Sudan and Turkey of supporting terrorism in the conflict-torn Arab country.
"By supporting terrorists, Qatar committed crimes against humanity in Libya," Mesmari said in the Egyptian capital Cairo.
The Libyan spokesman stated that he has documents proving involvement of the three countries of providing Libyan terror militia with logistic provisions. He will present the documents to the international community.
What else Ahmed al-Mesmari stated:
- All we need from the international community is to lift the arms embargo imposed on the Libyan army to fight terrorism.
- My army achieved progress and controlled vast areas in Libya despite fighting four major categories: the Islamic State (IS), al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood group and criminal gangs which possess weapons and ammunition.
- In one week, we controlled three large air bases in central Libya. My army managed to completely destroy the IS in Benghazi.
He clarified that the IS presence in Libya is declining while the criminal gangs control large parts in Tripoli.
