Libya’s GNA condemns terrorist attack in Sabha

A statement issued on Tuesday by the Presidential Council’s Head Fayez al-Sarraj said that the airstrike should be treated as a “war crime”.

The Presidential Council of the Government of National Accord (GNA) has condemned what it described as “terrorist attack” on the military zone in Sabha, southern Libya, saying Khalifa Haftar is to blame for the return of terrorists to operate in the country due to his war on Tripoli, which created security vacuum for them to use.

The Presidential Council added that the international community’s inaction toward the violations committed by Haftar in his war on Tripoli would pave the way to more terrorist threats and attacks in the country, reminding the world that the GNA was behind the total defeat of ISIS in Sirte and kept destroying its sleeper cells across the county over the last years.

The Interior Ministry also condemned the attack, which was later claimed by ISIS, and said Haftar’s attack on Tripoli created chaos in Libya and allowd the terrorists to return to their activities.

At dawn on Saturday, an attack by an armed group on 166 Brigade of Haftar’s forces in Sabha left 9 fighters killed.
