LIBYA UNITY GOVERNMENT DENOUNCES FRENCH MILITARY INVOLVEMENT
The U.N.-brokered government in Libya denounced France’s military involvement in the country, shortly after the French acknowledged that their special forces were operating in the war – wrecked North African nation.
France yesterday reiterated its support to the unity government in Tripoli, just a day after it had confirmed that three of its soldiers were killed in eastern Libya — the first time the French government had acknowledged its presence in the oil-rich country.
The acknowledgment was also an embarrassment for France because it exposed that the French forces are in eastern Libya, fighting alongside Brig. Gen. Khalifa Hifter — a bitter opponent of the Tripoli-based U.N.-backed unity government. (*****So glad both are traitors to Libya but the best thing of all is that you westerns think you know Libyans you don’t know shit, we have a mind of our own and we have allegiance with our own tribes neither France, England or America are our bosses and we will never surrender. Hifter, the U.N. backed unity government & France are not fighting DAESH they are assisting them & now the fight is who will get more money and recognition so spare me with the embarrassment the WEST HAS EMBARRASSED ITSELF SINCE 2011 SHOWING ITS TRUE COLOURS.)
Hifter has also for the past two years has been fighting Islamic militias, including an al-Qaida-affiliated group in Benghazi. ****While in 2011 he was fighting alongside does that make any sense to you? The reason he is fighting against them is to get a bigger cut)
On Tuesday, Libyan officials first told The Associated Press that an Islamic militia had shot down a helicopter near the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, killing two French officers, in an area called al-Magrun, west of Benghazi. French and Libyan officials have not provided information on where the third officer died.
Ahmed al-Mesmari, the spokesman for Hifter’s forces, told reporters in Benghazi on Wednesday that the French were gathering intelligence on the Islamic State affiliate in Libya. ****(Everybody knows that outside Sirte Daesh together with the US CIA have installed the best surveillance machines Thank you United States thank you Hillary Clinton you made our country worthless may Allah forgive you because I can not you ruined my country, family, brothers and sisters, babies in this five year war we have lost over a million of our population and for what to keep the Cabal happy and the dollar safe. I WISH FOR ALL WHO ARE INVOLVED IN THIS WAR AGAINST LIBYA NEVER RESTS, HAS NIGHTMARES FOR THE LIVES THEY TOOK THAT INCLUDES ALSO REPORTERS)
The deaths of the French officers reveal secretive Western military cooperation with the anti-Islamist eastern forces opposed to the U.N.-brokered government and underscored international community’s contradictions where foreign military forces are siding by rival militias and forces in Libya.
Also Wednesday, hundreds of protesters demonstrated in Tripoli against France’s involvement in Libya, burning the French flag and calling for attacks on French business interests in Libya.
Al-Sadeq al-Ghariyani, an ultraconservative cleric, denounced France’s involvement as “foreign invasion.” ***(Al sadeq al asshole Ghariyani is one to talk in 2011 he was begging France to intervene and now his talking of a foreign invasion? really what a joke did somebody cut off his salary?)
Dodging an explanation as to why French special forces are operating in Libya, French Foreign Ministry spokesman Romain Nadal said yesterday that “support for the Government of National Accord is a priority for France.”
“France encourages all Libyan forces to be placed under the authority of the government to participate in the recovery of the country and the fight against terrorism,” Nadal added. (**** when they say encourages to participate in the recovery they mean that all Libyans have to back the UN backed government which is MuslimBrotherhood aka Daesh and the most important thing is that its not elected democratically they where so afraid to go to Tripoli and when they succeeded to enter Tripoli they where staying in the naval base Matiga under the most wanted terrorist Belhaj. So the French want us to back them I don’t think so….)
After the 2011 ouster of longtime Moammar Gadhafi by NATO-backed rebels, Libya slid into chaos and years later, it split into two governments and parliaments, each backed by a loose array of militias and tribes. In December, a U.N. deal created a new unity government and presidency council, aiming to heal the rift and unite Libyan militias and forces under a joint command.
However, the new government has been facing multiple challenges and resistance from various groups. (*** the groups mean tribes)
According to the deal, Libya’s internationally-recognized parliament must give a vote of confidence to the new government but it has so far failed to do so, causing political deadlock. (*****the internationally recognised parliament is correct because the UN backed government is sole from MuslimBrotherhoods who the Libyans do not want that is why Tripoli is hold captive since 2014)
For the past two years, foreign missions and military experts have joined the two rival sides.
Meanwhile, Libya’s pro-government militias — mainly from the western city of Misrata — have been waging a two-month offensive against the Islamic State group in the militants’ last bastion in Sirte, a city on the Mediterranean. Reports have suggested that British forces are involved in the anti-IS assault while American warplanes have struck several IS positions in the western city of Sabratha and the eastern town of Ajdabiya.
