The Libyan Government of National Accord (GNA) recently celebrated the recapture of western cities, south of the capital Tripoli, following the Libyan National Army (LNA) withdraw toward Sirte, where violent fighting still ongoing. After the so-called “liberation” by the GNA, extremist elements appeared in Tarhouna, a Libyan town 65 kilometres southeast of Tripoli. Local sources affirm that Shura Benghazi Council elements appeared in the city, always faithful to the Libyan Army of Marshal Khalifa Haftar.
Videos and photos showed, once again, the collaboration between the GNA armed groups of Tripoli and Misrata, linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, and terrorist elements of Daesh and Al-Qaeda.A video also showed the well-known Syrian ISIS terrorist Abu Adi as he wanders the streets of Tripoli with the militias of the Al-Wefaq government. Previously, during the “liberation process” of Sabratha and Sormon, the GNA armed groups took the streets, waving Daesh flags.
The Libyan branch of the Muslim Brotherhood lead the country’srogueIslamist government in Tripoli, known as the Government of National Salvation (GNS), following the fall of Muammar Gaddafi Government. Many members of the terrorist group, acting as democratic, are in control of the Presidential Council of the Tripoli-based government.
The group also have members in the High Council of State led by Khalid al-Meshri, former political leader of Justice and Construction, the Libyan wing of the Brotherhood. The Brotherhood has also maintained strong ties to Islamist militias that once backed the former Islamist General National Council (GNC). Three of the Libya Dawn militias are directly allied with the Brotherhood: the 17 February Martyrs Brigade, the Misrata militias, and the Libyan Revolutionaries Operations Room.
The Government of Fayez al-Serraj always denied those allegations, but didn’t take any action to distinguish Statal armed groups from other terrorist militias. Despite several appeals from the International Community to GNA fighter to take distance by extremist elements, they continue to cooperate in the fighting against the Libyan army, killing thousands of civilians. Instead of pursuing these acts, the GNA let 400 criminals be liberated from western coastal prisons last month. Between Wednesday and Friday, dozens of civilians were killed or arrested on charges of collaborating with the LNA in Tarhouna, while Benghazi Shura terrorists are free to destroy public and private property.
