East Libya forces prepare to take control of Tripoli, military chief says
A military chief of staff of the east-based Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) has vowed to march with 35.000 fighters to Tripoli and liberate it from “militias.”
Abdelrazik Al-Nadori told the Swiss German-Language newspaper Neuen Zürcher Zeitung that they are readying their troops for the control and liberation of the Libyan capital, adding that the residents of the western region will give them a war welcome.
He also told the Zurich-based daily that their forces – led by the commander of Operation Dignity Khalifa Haftar – won’t face difficulties in fighting and expelling the “Islamist militias.”
Al-Nadori is the appointed chief of staff by the HoR and Al-Bayda Interim Government and he is also the governor of the east as appointed by Haftar.
For more than once, Haftar and his officials have vowed to take on Tripoli and expel the “militias” in order to exact law and order, always connecting it to their victories in Benghazi, which is still until today a battlefield for war and destruction.
