The Mayor of Ajdabia city, Salim Jodran, told Press Solidarity that fighters affiliated with Khalifa Haftar tried to arrest the GNA proposed Defense Minister, Mahdi al-Barghathi, who is a prominent military figure close to Libya’s internationally recognised administration, once he landed in Lebrag airport Thursday coming from Tunisia.

Jodran added that a force securing al-Barghathi foiled the arrest attempt, pointing out that such an act is no more than a crime.

“al-Barghathi is a senior military leader who was fighting on front lines even before Hafatr becomes known to the public, so how come that al-Barghathi becomes a criminal wanted by Haftar knowing that he is nominated for the Defense Minister post in the GNA?” Indicated Jodran.

Worth mentioning that a statement issued by Khalifa Haftar Thursday ordered that al-Barghathi be arrested, saying that he is betrayer.
