Dignity Operation and HoR’s Chief of Staff admits French forces’ presence
The Chief of Staff of the Tobruk-based House of Representatives, Saqir Al-Jorushi, admitted Wednesday evening that there are French troops among their forces in the Dignity Operation in Benghazi, eastern Libya.
Al-Jorushi told Al-Raed TV channel Wednesday that there are almost 10 foreign Special Forces soldiers in many areas tasked to do surveillance on the ISIS militants in the country.
His confession of the presence of foreign troops comes hours after France’s President and Defense Ministry confirmed the death of three French troops in the Sunday helicopter shoot-down.
