Spokesman of Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous, Brigadier General Mohammed Al-Ghosri

The Spokesman of Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous, Brigadier General Mohammed Al-Ghosri, has told local media in Libya that the surveillance done by NATO in Libya recently will be followed by military operations in coordination with the Presidential Council and the Government of National Accord’s Defence Minister.

Al-Ghosri indicated that Libya needs a professional army and that internal training centers in Libya are enough for such a step.

He also added that the Libyan army must be united and that the foreign military intervention in the country could have negative consequences.

Meanwhile, according to reports from Sirte, IS militants seized control of an about 100-km area to the east of Sirte – Wadi Al-Ahmar – and have set up checkpoints and started detaining residents in the area already.

Sources from the area reported to local media in Libya on Sunday that IS arrived last Friday in the area after a successful attack on Al-Noufiliya checkpoint killing at least two and wounding over 7 Operation Dignity fighters.
