Hamas declines Haftar’s accusations that it sent fighters to Libya

The Palestinian resistance group, Hamas, has denied the claims of the leader of Operation Dignity Khalifa Haftar that it had sent fighters to Libya.

Khalifa Haftar accused the Gaza-based resistance group of sending members of its armed wing to fight in Libya on behalf of Qatar.

“Hamas has not — and will not — send its fighters and weapons abroad,” leading Hamas member Khalil al-Hayya said in a Thursday statement, reported Anadolu Agency.

“Our weapons remain directed solely at Israel, which we will continue to resist — even if it means sacrificing our leaders, our sons and our homes,” al-Hayya declared, according to Anadolu Agency.

Pro-Haftar eastern government of Abdullah Al-Thinni also joined Gulf states and Ciro in cutting relations with Qatar, appearantly for supporting Hamas and claims of backing up terrorist groups in the Arab world.
