Demonstrations in support of Benghazi Defense Brigades


A number of people took to the street in many Libyan cities such as Misurata, Tripoli, and Sabha, in a demonstration to speak out their support for the Benghazi Defense Brigades.

The demonstrators stood in the squares with slogans in support of the Benghazi Defense Brigades, which are formed by many military personnel from Benghazi and other eastern cities and led by General Brigadier Mustafa Al-Shirkcy.

They also hailed the advances the forces of the Benghazi Defense Brigades are making day by day in Ajdabia and on to Benghazi, leaving Dignity Operation, led by Khalifa Haftar, forces in complete retreat and defeat.

It is worth mentioning that the Benghazi Defense Brigades had kicked off a military operation dubbed “Volcano of Wrath” a couple of days ago aiming at defending Benghazi and its residents against Dignity Operation forces.
