The Chief of Staff of the Libyan army based in west of the country Abdelrahman Al-Tweel has been sacked after his military rank is lowered by the Head of the Presidential Council, Fayez Al-Sirraj.

The sacking and reduction of rank came in two decrees on Monday signed by Al-Sirraj.

Al-Taweel refused two days ago his last February’s dismissal decision by Al-Sirraj and said he is staying in post to unite the military institutions.

He also said he was ready to sit down with Khalifa Haftar and talk unity of the army.
