The Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs has debunked social media rumours about Foreign Minister Najla Al-Mangoush’s resignation. 

The Ministry urged all relevant media outlets to fact-check their data and only report news from credible sources, rather than publishing unfounded nonsense designed to disrupt the Ministry’s work.

It also urged Libyan journalists to be objective and truthful in their reporting.

In recent months, Al-Mangoush has come under fire for singling out Turkish forces on Libyan soil, referring to them as mercenaries in her call for all foreign troops to leave the country.

Some agree with the Minister and consider any foreign intervention on Libyan soil to be an infringement on Libyan sovereignty, while others consider Turkish forces to be a reliable and necessary alley.

Following pressure to resign, the Minister revised her statement and reiterated her call for all foreign forces to leave Libya immediately.
