Libyans march to streets to decry France’s intervention in Benghazi
Massive numbers of Libyans took to the public squares in Tripoli and Misurata as well as other cities to condemn in the strongest terms the French intervention in Libya by backing up Dignity Operation forces in the east of Libya, led by Khalifa Haftar.
Many Libyans held in hand slogans denouncing the vile intervention of the French troops who the French President and Defense Minstry announced they were “killed with pride” on a “dangerous intelligence operation” in Libya.
On Wednesday morning, Benghazi Defense Brigades said 13 of its forces were killed and others wounded in what it described a ”vengeance” French airstrike on their locations in western Benghazi, targeting their vehicles and fighters alongside Khalifa Haftar’s Dignity Operation aircraft, to retaliate for the death of its soldiers who were killed in a helicopter downing in Al-Magroun on Sunday.
