TRIPOLI, (BM) – The representative of the Libyan National Army (LNA), led by Khalifa Haftar, Abdul Salam al-Badri turned to Israel for support. This was reported on June 11 by the Israeli newspaper Makor Rishon daily, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
“We never had and never will have enemies in Tel Aviv. We hope that you will support us,” al-Badri said in a commentary to the publication.
The official called on the Israeli government to join the negotiations on a maritime agreement. The discussion was initiated by the authorities of Greece, Cyprus, Egypt and Lebanon.
Recall that the internal conflict in Libya has continued since 2011, when the country’s legitimate leader was brutally murdered by bandits who took advantage of the invasion of NATO forces in the country.
Libyan civil war
In Libya, armed clashes are currently taking place between supporters of different leaders. The country is led by the Government of National Accord (GNA), headed by Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj, the “eastern government” led by Abdullah Abdurrahaman at-Thani.
The eastern government is supported by the commander of the Libyan National Army, Khalifa Haftar.
Recall that January 13 in Moscow, negotiations were held between the heads of the Libyan National Army (LNA) Khalif Haftar and the Government of National Accord (GNA) Faiz Sarraj. Also present were members of the Foreign Ministries of Russia and Turkey.
On the meeting the commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, has notified Russia about the conditions for continuing negotiations on the signing of a peace agreement in Libya.
According to the requirements of Haftar, the militias operating in Libya are required to surrender weapons in the period from 45 to 90 days. This process should be controlled by a special commission created by the LNA together with the UN
Haftar also refused to recognize Turkey as an intermediary in resolving the situation in Libya, since the Turkish side is not neutral and supports the Government of National Accord (GNA).
