Tubu Tribes want their own country in southern Libya
One of Tubu tribes elders, Essa Abdulmajeed, and the advisor of the President of Tobruk Parliament, Aqilah Saleh, discussed with some powerful European and African countries the necessity to split from the state of Libya and become independent.
The Middle East newspaper reported that the Tubu tribes in Libya expressed their desire to have an independent state in the south of Libya at the borders with Chad, with the capital being Al-Kufra or Rabeyan.
Recently, Al-Kufra has been under hot clashes between locals, Tubu Tribes and infiltrators from Sudan and Chad who aimed at taking hold of the bordet city as it has a strategic position.
