Khalifa Haftar called for a crisis government to be formed in Libya

23
According to RIA "News"With reference to the Reuters agency, the rebel General Khalifa Haftar stated the need to form a crisis government that will take over the leadership of the country and the holding of elections scheduled for June 25.


“I urge the Supreme Judicial Council to form a crisis government to control the upcoming elections,” Haftar said, noting that the current parliament and government have lost their legitimacy due to their inability to resist extremists.

In support of Haftar, the Libyan Minister of Culture spoke, who said that he “did not recognize the country's general national congress” and went over to the side of the general.

Earlier, the action "Libya's Honor against Terrorism", which began last week, Khalifa Haftar, first in Benghazi and then in Tripoli, was joined by the Libyan Interior Ministry. Representatives of the ministry called on all employees to "join the general action, to protect public institutions and citizens."

The escalation of the situation in Libya began after the attacks of the Islamist positions in Benghazi, launched by the forces of the rebellious general last week without notifying the current authorities. On Sunday armed clashes started in Tripoli. In recent days, on the side of Haftar moved a number of units army and police, as well as moderate Libyan groups.

    Unhappy country, unhappy people. American democracy in action. Throughout history, the United States has not brought peace to anyone.

      If the semi-finished version is like in Egypt, I think everything will be fine. Although if the US does not support the general, then he has big problems. In Egypt, pro-Russian forces came to power and immediately portraits of Putin appeared, and the marshal flew to Moscow and signed a cooperation agreement.

      What does America have to do with it, if Israel destroyed everything there in 1982?

      This general, the American litter, once betrayed the country and fled to the United States, which means a CIA agent.

        According to your logic, the Internet should also be turned off then, because it was invented by a British homosexual, which means the MI-5 bloodhound. And Afghanistan in general is an American colony because Shah Masood ruled there.

      Well, and what the Western democratizers have achieved - returning everything to normal.

    The aggravation of the situation in Libya began after attacks by the positions of Islamists in Benghazi, launched by the forces of the rebel general last week without notifying the current authorities. On Sunday, armed clashes began in Tripoli. In recent days, a number of army and police units, as well as moderate Libyan groups, have sided with Haftar.
    and then "divide and rule ..." They will not let this general reassemble the country.

    Now here in Libya, it seems, the army is taking power. Some Ukrainian army men are neither fish nor meat.

    That is, they threw off the tyrant, destroying the country and killing the people, it doesn’t count, and now whimpering they crawl under the arm of a real military dictator. Beautiful country, smart people.

      After a big booze, there is always a terrible hangover. So it is with Libya, so it will be with Ukraine. I would not be surprised if a "temporary" dictator appears in Kiev.

      That is, they turned into the oil Jamahiriya, and then they would have killed their leader?

    I hope Haftar will not make Gaddafi’s mistakes and will buy more air defense equipment ...

    The general wants to preserve the Libyan nation-state, and the Islamists tear it to shreds to create a mythical world caliphate!

    This general must be helped. He seems to be anti-stat.

      Haftar lived in the USA for 20 years and spoke on the side of the rebels against Colonel Gaddafi. Dark horse.

    Again, it turns out that in Libya, a civil war begins. Here it is the result of the policy of the Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

    A military man who tasted secular life will never become an orthodox Muslim.
