The LNCHR also condemned the violations to the Humanitarian International Laws and Geneva Conventions that were done by the Operation Dignity forces of Khalifa Haftar in Benghazi amid the silence of the House of Representatives and the Transitional Government of Abdullah Al-Thinni.

“There should be an investigation into this crime done by Haftar’s forces at the Benghazi Appeals Court and the Attorney General Office as well as the Justice Commssion of the HoR.” The LNCHR indicated.
