2014 Rebel Infighting

2014 Rebel* Infighting
July 12, 2014
(last edits, Jan. 6, 2015)

Where "rebel" means the people I called that in 2011 - those involved with the outside powers in the destruction of the last functioning government Libya ever knew.

I open here a new space for comments for my good gremlin "h" and perhaps other to drop helpful information about the new fighting and what it means, etc. Sorry, I'm swamped.

Nov. 23 note: I'm currently absorbing the 110 comments below, plus some basic sources, to get some kind of grasp on this year's situation. While I'm at it, I'll distill this into a readable summary, for what it's worth.

Jan. 6, 2015: With the entire year 2014 to catch up now passed, with little progress, I officially say screw it for now. Who cares if I know about it and can blog about it? H has kept us updated in comments I have been reading some of. I've invited her (her/him) to be a team member and post posts, but no luck. Any other readers willing to give it a try? Preferably someone with analysis and writing skills, but mainly a knowledge of what's up and good links, and on a wavelength compatible with the site ... I forget just how but it's do-able. Join the blog, and you can join me, Petri, and Felix as the three people (or is it all 45 "members"? never been clear on that) who could be authoring visible posts here (and you can edit/update your own posts later, just not anyone else's - I think I get to edit anyone's but not sure about that. I can delete spam, for certain)


  1. Zero comments? I hope I didn't offend you there, h. No pressure, just if you have useful links on these stupid new clashes in Libya, they could go here to save space elsewhere. I saw only the airport fighting, Misrata now called Misratis, and there was some other fighting news I saw in passing ... sorry.

  2. These are some pictures of Tripoli this morning .. On Sunday, 13/07/2014.

    And after that in 2011 : killing or wounding a 90,000-120,000 Libyans and foreigners

    Twenty four hours earlier an Atlantic Alliance command unit, located approximately 30 miles off the Libyan coast, in a direct line with Malta, and NATO’s targeting unit had signed off on 49 bombing missions for June 20th, the last day of spring and the last day of NATO’s original UN bombing mandate.

    The authority for NATO’s  bombing, which far exceeded  earlier estimates ,
    killing or wounding of between 90,000-120,000 Libyans and foreigners,
    and the displacement of more than two million Libyans and foreign workers was claimed from the hastily adopted UN Security Council Resolutions 1970 and UNSCR 1973.  
    UN resolutions 1970 & 1973 gave NATO UN Chapter 7 authority to enforce a no-fly zone over Libyan airspace, initially for 90 days which ironically ended
    the day before its bombing at Sorman.

    Protests outside Military Intelligence offices at appointment of Salah Badi
    The headquarters of the Libyan Military Intelligence was blockaded yesterday
    by staff protesting about the appointment of former General National Congress (GNC) member Salah Badi as its new head.

    Officers and other staff members from the department complained at the decision to appoint Badi as the Director of Military Intelligence.
    It appears that Badi, a former Air Force officer, was appointed in November last year, following his promotion to Colonel by order of GNC head, Nuri Abu Sahmain.

    However, the decision was not made public until very recently. The entrances to the Tripoli headquarters was blockaded with sand bags, according to Bawabat Al-Wasat.
    They said they would prevent Badi from entering the building and one of the protesters said that Badi was not qualified to do the job.

    Spokesman for the Military Intelligence Commission Abdul Basset Al-Shaari said that although the Commission had heard about Badi’s appointment, it had not been asked to vet him. “We haven’t received any papers to investigate him after his appointment as chief of Military Intelligence,” Shaari said. “When he was promoted to colonel, he also should have been investigated by the Commission but again we didn’t receive the relevant papers so we could not open the enquiry.”

    Badi was elected as an independent to Congress in July 2012 and became a member of Wafa bloc. He resigned following the request by Misrata’s Local Council that all the city’s GNC representatives to do so following the Gharghour massacre in November 2013
    in which some 40 people were killed and scores injured.

    Outlaw. Salah Bady and Wadida Aloescha threw missiles at Tripoli airport

  4. 15 July 2014 As many as 15 people have been killed and 70 wounded at Tripoli Airport
    as missiles have rained down hitting its control tower and two planes, sources on the ground have claimed.

    Reports have come in of several fires at the airport as its air traffic control tower burned after being hit by one rocket. The attack on Zintani forces on the premises has been said to be coming from forces in Qasr Ben Ghashir and Wadi Rabia.


    On Sunday, militia including members of the Libya Revolutionaries Operations Room (LROR) tried to seize control of the airport from the Zintan militia,
    (which has controlled it since Gaddafi was toppled. )

    Zintani and Sebha forces secure local airport
    By Jamal Adel.Tripoli, 30 January 2014:
    Sebha airport has now been secured by Zintani revolutionaries, working with members of the local 6th . . .

  5. JULY 14, 2014
    A statement from the government of Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni described the attackers of Tripoli's International Airport as "armed militias acting outside the law and without any official orders."

    The government called on all sides to refrain from using force.

    Nonetheless, leading Muslim Brotherhood member Abdul Razag al Aradi supported the attackers, describing their grab for the airport as a response to "aggression" by Khalifa Haftar, the ex-general who has been leading Libyan armed forces in a crusade against Islamist militias.

    The Zintanis have been actively supporting Haftar's "Operation Dignity" -- his fight against Islamist militias in the east -- and they have also played a role in Haftar's forces in Tripoli. The Zintanis supported Haftar's demands for the dissolution of the General National Congress (GNC), which they see as under the sway of the Islamists.

    Justice and Construction Party member Mahmud Abdulaziz also endorsed the operation, hinting that he knew about it in advance. "Libya Shield forces from Misrata have told me they'll keep the number of causalities to a minimum as they attempt to take over the airport," he said in a post on his Facebook page.

    All these statements underlined the continuing collapse of state institutions and the inability of the country's leaders to challenge the rise of the militias.


    The assault on the airport can be interpreted as a pre-emptive move to exert more influence by seizing important installations in the capital.

    The Islamists are determined to maintain their position as a key player on the political scene, following their defeat in the recent elections and the rising threat from Haftar's military operation against the Islamists in eastern Libya.

    The general has said that he will soon target Islamists in Tripoli as well.

  6. September 19, 2011 SIRTE, Libya — More than 100 families fled the war-torn city of Sirte Monday morning

    "Salah Badi, the high commander of the Western frontline, said there were still at least 20,000 families inside the city.


    Some families were heading toward relatives in other cities.
    For those without shelter, temporary accommodation has been set up in a group of abandoned apartment blocks in the city of Tuwarga.

  8. h, awesome, thanks!

    "still busy counting the bayda/shahat /benghazi
    burned , lynched , executed people ,
    maybe 500 in 1 week
    defending their homeland,

    I've seen lots of comments there. You have a count? I'll have to look into that.

    Any other suggestions for posts/comment spaces that would help?

    "These are some pictures of Tripoli this morning .. On Sunday, 13/07/2014." (done as links):
    - 1
    - 2

    Some other good info, worth working into their spots and maybe even making new spot - if there were two of me, it'd be done soon. Otherwise... I'm still on Syria mainly and pushing on a strong lever - aiming to change as many minds as possible about the Houla Massacre. Will be happening largely at a new blog here.

  9. Eddie, good the hear from you too. Good article. I typed almost a review of it earlier and swear I hit submit but now it's gone. Short version: I forget what I know about Heftar except not too good, I thought. Here - okay. These developments seem to have some good features. The tribes are good. Islamist loss in parliament is good. Less Islamists in Syria and Iraq is good.

  10. http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/security/2014/05/libya-battle-haftar-militias-course-future.html#

    Libyan sources that were well-informed of the military situation told As-Safir that the real clash was between national democratic forces represented by the Qaaqaa Brigade and the Special Forces Brigade on the one hand,
    and on the other the Libyan Revolutionary Operations Chamber and the Supreme Security Committee, under the control of Hashem Bashar, Abdel Raouf Kara and the remaining extremists, mostly linked to the so-called Libyan Fighting Islamic Group (LIFG) and the war in Afghanistan.
    After having received reports of armed clashes between Zintan and Misrata militias in Tripoli, the sources said that the real clashes were not between these two forces. They said that this portrayal was promoted to turn the issue into an internal regional clash, since the Misrata militias lost their influence and presence in the capital.

  11. crimes 'Salah Badi' in Bani Walid!! 2012

    Salah Badi is known as a former member of the Libyan National Congress parliament , allied himself with the Muslim Brotherhood, and well established links with the Libyan Fighting Group, and the rest of the organizations and armed militias linked to al-Qaeda and Ansar al-Sharia.


    The Brotherhood and a number of organizations and allied militia”s have launched ten days ago a military operation under the name of "the dawn of Libya" to support Qatari and Turkish for control of the capital Tripoli,

    The process of 'dawn Libya' failed to control the Tripoli International Airport,
    Qatar, Turkey transported hundreds of Libyan and Tunisian extremists from Aleppo, Syria via Istanbul to Libya

  12. I finally double-checked Heftar - as I once knew, he's the CIA-groomed Virginian. What I said about this being good is qualified by the fact that a CIA guy is trying to lead this fight against Al-CIAda. Depending where he actually stands now and who with, it could be okay. Otherwise, it could be bad.

    US diplomatic staff pulled out now, I hear.

  13. Both the UAE and Saudi Arabia are openly backing Hiftar,
    as is the military coup leader in Egypt, General Sisi.

    Having suppressed, jailed and shot in large numbers Egypt's own Islamists,
    Sisi and his Gulf backers are determined to prevent them consolidating power in oil-rich Libya.

    There are signs that Sisi – who complains that the west failed to garrison Libya after Gaddafi's overthrow – wants to use Libya's crisis to send in his own forces. 22 May 2014.


    comment February 19, 2012 at 9:03 PM
    "We want to train our guys to be ready to go to the front," says Fawzi al-Ubeidi,
    a 46-year-old former sergeant in the Libyan army who defected to the U.S. with Hiftar, and who left his home in Johnson City, N.Y., to join the rebellion

    A guard stands with his weapon in front of a sports club ahead of Khalifa Hifter's news conference in Abyar, east of Benghazi, May 21, 2014. (photo by REUTERS/Esam Omran Al-Fetori)

    In May, Haftar declared a campaign to rid the North African oil-producing country from armed Islamist groups.

  14. 13 July 2014 A few days before he was elected Egypt’s president in May,
    Abdel Fattah al-Sisi discreetly visited tribesmen living along the border with Libya.

    Tribal leaders there say Sisi, former head of the army, urged them to help Egypt
    confront what could be a security nightmare for the biggest Arab nation:
    Islamist militants operating just over the frontier in Libya.

    “Sisi came to us and asked us to stand behind the security forces and army to help them to control the border because what is happening in Libya poses a grave danger to Egypt,” said Mohamed al-Raghi, a tribal chief.

    Wearing a flowing white robe and a traditional black cap outside a mosque in the border town of Salloum, Raghi said he and other tribal leaders had assured Sisi they would help him.


  15. Lastly, after a series of concerned remarks from Egyprian President Abdel Fattah Sisi,

    former Arab League General Secretary Amr Moussa

    announced that Egypt might step up its role in the ongoing Libyan crisis
    over concern for regional and internal stability,
    invoking the country’s right to self defense in light of the political and security vacuum
    that currently characterizes the region of Cyrenaica.

  16. “We know the Egyptian military council is helping us, but they can’t be so visible,”
    said Hani Souflakis, a Libyan businessman in Cairo who has been acting as a rebel liaison with the Egyptian government since the uprising began.


    25 feb. 2011 However, Washington decided to look outside Europe for an army to go into Libya.
    Its eye fell on the Egyptian army.
    But when over last weekend, the US first took the matter up with Egyptian Defense Minister and head of the Supreme Army Council ruling the country,
    Field Marshal Mohammed Tantawi,

    the silence from Cairo was eloquent, DEBKA-Net-Weekly‘s military and Washington sources report. The generals clearly had enough on their plates with sorting out the mess left in the wake of the turbulent uprising which removed Mubarak and were too busy to get involved in other troubles.

    Unbearable economic strain on Egypt from returning laborers
    But when the Egyptians employed in Libya starting flocking back home,
    the military rulers changed their minds and decided to give the American proposition
    a second look. They were moved by six considerations:( )

    As of now, DEBKA-Net-Weekly‘s military and intelligence sources report that Washington and Cairo are discussing a limited Egyptian excursion into Libya.
    It will be presented as a US-backed Egyptian campaign, with some European participation, embarked on as the only recourse for terminating Libya’s civil war and forcing its dictator to relinquish power.

    But the immediate mission will be for an Egyptian air umbrella to close the air space over Cyrenaica against Libyan air and sea raids.

    US military planners calculate that no more than a single Egyptian armored division in Cyrenaica – or even a half of one – would suffice to curb Qaddafi’s offensive on the rebels and force his troops to withdraw.

    6. The scenario taking shape in Washington and Cairo according to our sources is this: Limited Egyptian military intervention supported by European sanctions would result in Libya’s partition into two national entities: Cyrenaica and Tripolitania, which will also include the Fezzan region.


  17. http://rt.com/news/177128-libya-islamis-militants-emirate/

    Libya’s Islamic militants ‘seize’ Benghazi, declare it ‘emirate’July 31, 2014

    Thursday, February 24, 2011 The group began calling itself the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) in 1995, and carried out a low-level insurgency that included assassination attempts against Gadhafi and attacks against military and police patrols.

    2.24.11, 11:34 Meanwhile, Al Qaeda's North African wing has condemned Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and expressed solidarity with protesters revolting against his rule, the SITE Intelligence Group quoted it as saying on Thursday.

    Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) accused Gaddafi of hiring African mercenaries
    and ordering aircraft to fire on protestors, SITE said, citing a jihadist statement issued on Thursday.

    AQIM urged Muslim scholars, thinkers and journalists to support the Libyan people in their uprising.

    "We were pained by the carnage and the cowardly massacres carried out by the killer of innocents Gaddafi against our people and our unarmed Muslim brothers who only came to lift his oppression, his disbelief, his tyranny and his might," AQIM was quoted as saying in the statement.

    "We only came out to defend you against these despots who usurped your rights, plundered your wealth, and prevented you from having the minimum requirements of a dignified life and the simplest meanings of freedom and human dignity," AQIM said.

    The group, under pressure from Algerian security forces in the north, moved some of its operations to the desert area straddling Niger, Mali, Algeria and Mauritania where the vast expanses and porous borders have provided it with a safe haven.


    7 July 2014 In the last few months, Nato intelligence has identified the Acacus Mountains in south-west Libya, the town and surrounds of Oubari, possibly also Sebha and parts of the Messak ranges, as terrorist “hideouts” and possible new bases.
    In addition, there has been a lot of “chatter” in intelligence circles that Algerian terrorist Mokhtar Belmokhtar has now established himself in Libya and is planning terrorist operations in Chad.


    US armed forces are now involved in 49 out of 54 African states,
    along with the former colonial powers of France and Britain,
    in what's becoming a new carve-up of the continent:
    a scramble for resources and influence in the face of China's growing economic role, underpinned with an escalating military presence that spreads terror as it grows.
    hat will bring its own backlash, as did the war in Libya.

    only nine out of 22 members of the Arab League voted for the no-fly zone.

    The vote was essentially a House of Saud-led operation,

    with Arab League secretary general Amr Moussa
    keen to polish his CV with Washington
    with an eye to become the next Egyptian President.

    2 September 2011 The “friends” came to Paris not to discuss aid to Libya,
    but rather the lifting of economic sanctions imposed under the Gaddafi regime
    and the unfreezing of Libyan assets in foreign banks,
    measures designed to get money and resources flowing out of the North African country

    On the day of the summit, the French daily Liberation published the copy of a letter written in Arabic, purportedly from a representative of the Benghazi-based National Transitional Council, promising to cede to France 35 percent of its oil in return for its support.


    However, a conference call between US and EU leaders has so far led
    to a mere renewal of statements of support for the House of Representatives
    and for a bigger role to be played by the UN.

    Tripoli had been cleared of Gaddafi’s forces, with the exception of the Abu Salim quarter. I was with the 17 February Martyrs.
    Another rebel group had entered the district already and we were behind them.
    Snipers were shooting at us from a building ahead, and once we got to Humdorman,
    at the heart of Abu Salim, we encountered heavy resistance from the remains of Gaddafi’s forces.

    The rebels, divided into groups, occupied the whole area.

    1. Catching up here and saw this - very cool. My count, including the segregated group of 22 black guys, is just two off from the official collective death toll - which, coincidence or not, verifies again that about 50 people allegedly survived, and most of those completely unharmed... insane story, and they're sticking to it.

    After the massacre, the soldiers threw car tires into the warehouse and set fire to them, says Rafaii. It seems plausible:
    Tires burn for a long time, which would explain why the ash surrounding the skeletons was still warm on Saturday evening.
    It could also explain why only the bones of the dead were left, which would not have happened with a short gasoline-fueled fire.

    Commandant Abdoulsalam Cherafdine

    Former Prime Minister Abdelhamid Bakouch

    Mohammad Saifal-Nasr, Shaikh of the Awlad Sulayman Tribe and former Governor of Sabha


    Calling his campaign “The Dignity” movement,
    Haftar has militias from Tripoli and Zintan under his command. He has also recently garnered the backing of the Air Force and Navy as well former elements of Qaddafi’s forces.

    His campaign has made the city of Benghazi its primary objective.

    These forces have fought the Libya Shield alliance led by former Islamist parliamentarian and Misrata militia commander, Salah Badi, as well as the Benghazi Shura Council,
    which is mainly composed of Ansar al-Sharia in Libya.

    Haftar’s forces have also been targeting Qatari and Turkish interests in Libya due to their ties to Islamist factions.


    Today, all sides in that rebellion continue to play a role, whether militarily or politically. Indeed, groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG),
    or Ansar al-Sharia in Libya had no intention to lay down their arms after Gaddafi was finished.

    For one thing, Qatar and its ally Turkey, who have long supplied such groups with weapons and money, realized that the most important part of the uprising was the post-Gaddafi phase, and that the only fruits worth picking are the ones that are ripe.

    Qatar and Turkey had their way with the Islamist domination of the General National Congress

    that was elected in July 2012, after successfully turning their minority into a majority against Mahmoud Jibril’s faction.

    The fact of the matter was that “independent” MPs were actually supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood from day one.

    Hence, the Islamists dominated the country. The militias affiliated to them were given official cover under the command of Abdelhakim Belhadj, who was a former LIFG leader.
    These militias consisted of jihadis who returned from Afghanistan, and are very close to Qatar and Turkey.

    But Saudi Arabia would not tolerate the expansion led by its small neighbor in the Gulf
    into North Africa. Saudi Arabia could not tolerate for the Muslim Brotherhood, now its archenemy, to control an oil-rich country like Libya, and decided to press “the reset button” in regards to the situation there.
    Saudi and its ally the UAE thus began supplying the Zintan Brigades, which sporadically controlled Tripoli International Airport, with weapons and money.


    27 8 2014
    For Misratans, though, the presence of Zintan militias at the airport is a problem.
    “Zintan must leave the airport,” said Anwar Suwan, a member of Misrata’s military council on Sunday, a week after the first attacks, from a small farm in Gaser Bengashir,
    a district in Tripoli east of the airport, where Misrata are basing their attack.

    According to reporting by the New York Times this week,
    senior U.S. officials accused Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, both U.S. allies,
    of carrying out two airstrikes in recent days targeting militia groups vying for control over Tripoli. The strikes, the Times reports, mark "a major escalation of a regional power struggle set off by Arab Spring revolts."

  30. 2014
    The UAE acted in desperation to protect their clients in Libya, according to analysts

    “The rationale behind the strikes was likely that the airport was the main lifeline for the Zintanis in terms of armaments and refilling their arsenals.
    By taking the airport the Misratans have eliminated one of the main weapons supply hubs for their opponents.”

    Libiya UAE Aref Ali Nayed Tripoli's ambassador United Arab Emirates

    2011-08-08 Aref Ali Nayed, the head of the planning cell for the task force,
    said it was important that the general public "knows that there is an advance plan".
    "What you have obtained was an early draft," he told the paper. "We are now working on a much bigger picture."

    A 70-page plan prepared by the National Transitional Council (NTC) with help from Western powers and seen by the paper concedes they have little chance of toppling the long-serving ruler but that internal divisions will force him out.

    In that event, the rebels plan to establish a 10 000-15 000 strong "Tripoli task force" to secure the capital and capture prominent Gaddafi supporters.



    The document was drawn up by the National Transitional Council (NTC) in Benghazi
    with Western, and especially British, help.

    "We are asking for more Apache action," AP quoted Aref Ali Nayed as saying
    from Dubai. "They're very much needed." 21-8-2011


    In Dubai, Libya's new rebel-allied ambassador to the United Arab Emirates, urged for stepped up Nato air attacks over Tripoli, including the use of helicopter gunships.

    "We are asking for more Apache action" to counter Gaddafi forces clashing with rebels, said Aref Ali Nayed, who is also spokesman for a rebel transition team.

    The United Arab Emirates is among the Arab states that have strongly backed the rebellion against Gaddafi and could provide critical assistance if the Libyan leader is ousted.



    Prof Aref Ali Nayed, one of Libya's most senior religious leaders and a member of one of the major tribes in Libya, the Warfla tribe, tells the BBC World Service he expects that the tribes will stand united against the government of Col Gaddafi in this crisis: 21 Feb 2011

  31. Today, Libya has two nominal governments that pretend to preside over an anarchic, stateless region that is being pillaged and harassed by terror gangs.

    One parliament, dominated by non-Islamists, meets in Tobruk, an eastern city 1,000 miles away from Tripoli.

    An Islamist-dominated parliament, previously elected, does meet in Tripoli, but is hardly in control there; Operation Dawn, an Islamist rebel group, seized control of Tripoli's airport this week, setting the place ablaze.
    And Operation Dawn isn't even the biggest "winner" on the ground; that honor would probably go to Ansar al-Shariah, another Islamic extremist group.

    Meanwhile, the country is also reportedly being bombarded by Egyptian and Emirati airstrikes, according to The New York Times, as the conflict goes regional.

    According to the diplomat, Mr Cameron and President Sarkozy discussed how to help the rebels on the ground last Friday. A security source in the Gulf also told The Times that British and French officials discussed selling arms to Qatar with a view to Doha passing them on to Benghazi.

    “The issue was not whether to do it but how much [to send],” he said. “The Qataris are buying a lot of hardware from France and supplying the Libyans on the ground through Doha. France has denied it is engaged in such actions but we have good information that it is happening.”

    Colonel Salah Badi, the commander of rebel forces in Misrata, said that British officials rejected their request for arms. He complained that the officials had acknowledged that rebel leaders were correct in claiming that Colonel Gaddafi was breaking the arms embargo with weapons supplied secretly across the Algerian border.

    In a statement yesterday, a spokesman for the French Foreign Ministry said:
    “None of all that is true. We are acting strictly within the framework of United Nations resolutions 1970 and 1973 and we are not supplying weapons to the Libyan insurgents.”

    A Downing Street spokesperson said: “We are committed to fully implementing both UNSCR 1970 and 1973. We are not supplying arms to the National Transitional Council
    and we have no plans to do so.”

    Qatar has so far declined to comment on what products it has delivered to Libya,
    but western and rebel sources say it is supplying the rebels with money, fuel and now arms. These are believed to include French-made anti-tank missiles.

    Though its support is less publicised than that of Benghazi’s western allies,
    Qatar’s investment in the three-month-old revolution has been huge, and indicative of the major role that the affluent Gulf monarchy is taking in the region’s political affairs.

    “Qatar is our biggest Arab donor,” said Othman Mohammed Rishi, of the revolution’s Ministry of Finance and Oil.
    “They have given us fuel, credited us millions of dollars, and paid the bills for imports we could not afford. We are very grateful to them.”

    "What hurts me most are the young ones lured by the crazy Salah Badi from Misrata

    who involved them in the war; this battle cannot be settled," commented Noman Benotman, a terror group researcher and president of the Quilliam Institute.

    Benotman added that the death toll from Saturday's battle in the capital was reportedly 18 from the city of Misrata.

    "That city supported and is responsible for the destruction and killing of Tripoli and its people and the displacement of Tawergha residents," he said.

  34. A team of about 60 Qataris helped set up rebel command centers in Benghazi,
    the mountain city of Zintan and later in Tripoli, according to Qatari Staff Colonel Hamad Abdullah al-Marri, who later accompanied Mr. Belhaj on the march into Tripoli on Aug. 22, broadcast live on al-Jazeera.
    Mr. Marri said that during the rebel training, he interacted with about 30 Western liaison officers, including Britons, French and several Americans.


    Between April and the fall of Tripoli, at least 18 cargo planes left Qatar for Libya,
    filled with assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers and other small arms, as well as military uniforms and vehicles, say people familiar with the situation.

    Qatar funneled much of its aid through Ali al-Sallabi, say NTC-allied officials.
    They say the cleric's aid network, manned with his associates, allowed affiliated militias
    to receive the lion's share of both guns and money.

    Ali al-Sallabi helped to orchestrate more than a dozen of the shipments from Qatar, including 10 through Benghazi, these people say.

    At least three others went to the Western Mountains, where Mr. Belhaj was a top leader
    of rebels being trained by Qatari and Western advisers....

    People close to Mr. Belhaj emphasize they operated under the auspices of the NTC's Defense Ministry and that any weapons shipments were blessed by transitional Defense Minister Jalal al-Dugheily.

    as the military wing of the Tripoli branch of the (Transitional National) Council.

    Fawzi al-Ghiryani, the general coordinator of the National Movement for the Liberations of Libya (NMLL), which claimed responsibility for the Al-Andalus operation,
    told Al-Sharq al-Awsat from his headquarters in the Tunisian island of Djerba,

    Ali al-Salabi also used his contacts in (MB sympathetic) Qatar
    to increase his prominence in post-Ghadafi Libya.

    It's implausible to believe al-Salabi and Belhadj did not receive other aid from MB leaders in Egypt during and after the revolution, and it's likely both looked at Egypt as “the model” for the new Libya.

    However, unlike in Egypt where the MB received tacit approval and support from the US,
    the Libyan MB certainly viewed
    some “push-back” from the US: The support of “secular” Mahmoud Jibril for interim president and then Prime Minister;

    the reported lack of support for Belhadj from Ambassador Stevens
    and the public interference in weapons shipments to MB factions in Syria are the most publicly known.

  43. 28 apr. 2013 - Adel Al-Ghiryani (C), spokesperson of the Supreme Council of Libyan Revolutionaries, speaks to the media in Tripoli April 28, 2013.



    10th May 2013

    On 10th May a demonstration outside the Tebesti Hotel in Benghazi was interesting because an effigy of Emir Sheikh Hamid bin Khalifa al-Thani was burned.

    Benghazi is a troubled city where the US ambassador Stevens was killed in an attack
    on his consulate and over 20 senior military, air force and police officers have been killed.

    Many suspect the Salafist militia Ansar Sharia of complicity in these killings.

    So incensed was his defence minister, Mohamed Bargahthi, that he resigned in protest against the use of force to influence a democratically elected congress.

    Prime Minister Zedan singled out Adel Al-Ghiryani,
    the president of the ‘Supreme Council of Libyan Revolutionaries’, as the possible instigator and leader of the armed intervention.
    It is easy to see why. Al-Ghiryani spoke to the media outside the besieged Foreign Ministry in Tripoli demanding the dismissal of Ministry employees, including Libyan ambassadors who had worked for Qaddafi.
    His Vice President, Mr Kaabar, went further and stated: “We are determined to bring down the government of Ali Zidan.”
    5th May 2013

    The Misrat’s clan headed by Abdelrahman Suehli and country’s Mufti al-Sacliq al-Ghiryani do everything with support of Qatar and French funds to destabilise situation in region and to dethrone Zeidan cabinet.


    The Islamists seem to be closer to the British in their policies and do not object to London's orders.

    This is reflected in London's relationship with Abdul-Rahman al-Sowaihali al-Misrati who claims to be representing Misrata, a representation based on his control of a battalion of gunmen.

      People found the body of Martyr Hamdi Jumaa Al-Shalwi
      in Darna city eastern Libya.
      His head was cut off and then placed in front of the headquarters of the Internal Security Dernah.

      That was after being kidnapped from a checkpoint complex Herich. In response to this Al-Shalwi family erected a funeral tent to receive condolences in which the green flag [of Libya] was raised.

      After the funeral the whole city of Darna rose up with all its tribes which include:- the Abu Jazia family, Al-Shalwi family, The Quba families, Ain Marra families.


      Commenting on the UNSMIL invitation,
      political analyst and researcher at the Ain Studies and Research Foundation

      Hisham Al-Shalwi

      told Al-Ahram Weekly that “on the whole, I believe that UNSMIL is not a neutral party because it espouses the outlook of a particular party for a resolution to the political crisis. That party is the National Forces Alliance and a group of businessmen in the GNC whose interests are linked with the movement led by Prime Minister Ali Zeidan.” 

      Al-Shalwi said that an inclusive national dialogue was essential, as long as it was conducted without preconditions and in accordance with a comprehensive framework of principles aimed at safeguarding social peace and establishing the structures of an institutionalised government based on the peaceful rotation of power.“I do not shrink from saying that the National Forces Alliance and those who revolve in the orbit of the prime minister are responsible for driving the crisis to its furthest limits with the aim of obtaining gains by undermining the political process.

      [These forces] primarily aim to exclude the revolutionaries from participation in the national polity and to shake, indeed, topple the GNC, which is the last link in the interim phase as established by Article 30 of the Constitutional Declaration,” he said.“In addition, this scheme aims to strike at the moderate, centrist Islamist trend that believes in the rotation of power through the people’s election of their representatives and rulers.

      Finally, it seeks to rattle the general public’s confidence in the mufti,
      Sheikh Al-Sadeq Al-Gharyani, who, regardless of how we might differ with him with respect to many of his political ideas, remains the conscience of the collective mind and a symbol of the 17 February Revolution.”

  45. dernah

    2014-06-13 A Libyan jihadist just home from Syria was shot dead in Derna
    this week during a feud between rival terror groups.

    The al-Battar Brigade, which is affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), issued a statement on Monday (June 9th)
    saying that heads would be cut off, stomachs slit and Libya filled with graves to avenge Mahdi Saad Abu al-Abyadh al-Gaithi.

    Al-Ghaithi was killed in a clash with the Abu Slim Martyrs Brigade, inflaming the conflict between the jihadist groups.

    On the other hand, Ramzi Yousef, a member of Ansar al-Sharia said, "The group of al-Battar, the word refers to one of the names of the sword an affiliate of Ansar al-Sharia.

    It was founded in Syria and all its members are from Libya.
    They are the fiercest because they do not negotiate but just act. "
    He affirmed that it was a group trained in weapons and specialising in suicide attacks, bombings,
    and assassinations that they learned in Syria.
    According to local residents, the threat to Libyan civilians from the rival extremist groups is not just violence.
    "A family next door with eight young girls was forced to escape to Benghazi in August,"
    engineer Firas al-Mansouri, 32, told Magharebia.
    "The father was afraid and moved, to get away from extremist groups
    that marry off Libyan girls to al-Qaeda, against their parents' will."

    "The Abu Salim brigade is another form of al-Qaeda and Ansar are the same as ISIS," al-Mansouri added.

    U.S. and Libyan forces on Monday captured Saifallah Ben Hassine, the leader of Tunisia’s Islamist militant group Ansar al-Shariah, Tunisia's state news agency TAP said, citing a security source.
    He was apparently captured in the Libyan city of Misrata.December 30th, 2013


  46. benghazi

    MARCH 2, 2014
    Benghazi has been dealing with a low-grade guerrilla war between Islamist militants and security forces that defected from the former Qaddafi government.
    The security forces are now the closest thing to an army, and they have been facing a growing campaign of assassinations and bombings by Islamist militants
    for months. ( = years!)


    News reports citing Libyan officials said that at least two lawmakers were shot as they tried to flee. One was Abdul Rahman al-Swehli of Misurata, who was said to be hospitalized but not critically injured.

    The latest attack coincided with news confirming the arrival of reinforcements from Derna to support armed brigades against Haftar, in addition to the return of Libyan fighters from al-Battar battalion in Syria that joined Ansar al-Sharia.

    The battles resulted in water, electricity, and telecommunication cuts and shuttered vital services in the city.
    Even medical personnel were unable to work. 29/07/2014
    Tariq Elourfi, a local official in Benghazi, called on the city's population to protect their neighbourhoods.

    He also appealed to elders in Benghazi and its environs to intervene.

    Meanwhile, Ansar al-Sharia announced the death of nine of its leaders, including Ahmed al-Zahawi, brother of its emir, Mohamed al-Zahawi.

    August 9,2014
    A source from inside Ansar al-Sharia, Y. M. G., told Magharebia, "On Saturday, August 9, fierce fighting took place
    between Ansar al-Sharia and the Central Shield led by Wisam Bin Humaid,
    resulting in the loss of seven people in their ranks."


    The same source added that the reason for the fight was a power struggle in that "Ansar al-Sharia, led by Mohammed al-Zahawi wants an Islamic emirate in Benghazi

    and Wisam bin Humaid wants the Muslim Brotherhood to rule, which led to fighting between them and the rift that took place."

    Malek al-Sharif, the founder of Libya’s Rejection Movement [Harakat Rafed] :

    Sharif said, “In the last elections, the Brotherhood did not win the required percentage [of votes], because of the alliance between the national forces in the political conflict.

    However, they succeeded in reaching the National Congress by running as independent candidates.
    After succeeding, they announced that there were affiliated with the Brotherhood and a number of ministers in the current government became part of the Brotherhood.”

    He said that the Brotherhood in Libya was training some of the groups fleeing Egypt,
    and there were figures from the Egyptian Brotherhood that had arrived in Libya
    and were being trained in the use of weapons before they returned to Egypt.

    The best evidence of this correlation is that the Brotherhood leader Safwat Hegazi was arrested while he was on his way to Libya to be protected by the Libyan Brotherhood.

    On the statement of the Libyan ambassador in Cairo, who had said that those who were kidnapping Egyptians were affiliated with the former regime to cause a division between Egypt and Libya,
    Sharif told Azzaman, “This is not true and the Libyan ambassador needs to review past events. When US troops assisted Libyan troops in arresting al-Qaeda member Abu Anas al-Libi, Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan was kidnapped by armed militias in Libya.

    However, the operation has failed, because Abu Anas was moved outside the Libyan territories. Under international pressure exerted on the General National Congress, Zeidan was released.
    The best evidence is that Abu Obeida Zawi was arrested recently in Egypt, because
    he is a member of the Libyan Revolutionaries Operations Room,
    which is involved in acts of violence in Egypt and supports the Muslim Brotherhood,
    despite claims by Egyptian authorities that his arrest was because his residency expired.

    In response, the Libyan Revolutionaries Operations Room kidnapped Egyptian diplomats until the release of Abu Obeida.


  48. 25/01/2014
    The abduction came hours after Libya's state news agency reported the arrest of a militia commander, Shaaban Hadiya, in Egypt.
    Mr Hadiya was a top member of the Revolutionaries Operation Room, a militia blamed for the abduction of Libyan prime minister Ali Zidan last year.
    It claims to answer to the Libyan military but is widely seen as operating independently.

    Operation Room spokesman Adel al-Ghiryani called on Egypt to release Mr Hadiya, who was on a medical trip to Egypt.

    Mr Al-Ghiryani told The Associated Press that he has no idea why Mr Hadiya was detained, and denied his group was involved in the kidnapping of the diplomats.
    "We have no relation with this issue," he said.

    26 jan. 2014 - The abduction is believed to be in retaliation for the arrest of Shaaban Hadiya - also known as Abu Obaida al-Zawy
    Egypt has evacuated its Egyptian embassy staff in Tripoli and Benghazi consulate in Libya after five Egyptian diplomats, including the administrative attaché Hamdi Ghanem and the cultural attache Hilali Sherbini, had been kidnapped by an armed group on Friday and Saturday.
    The abduction is believed to be in retaliation for the arrest of Shaaban Hadiya - also known as Abu Obaida al-Zawy - the Egypt-based commander of the Libyan Revolution Operations Room.
    The Egyptian authorities arrested Hadiya in Alexandria on Friday on charges of links to Al- Qaeda.

    Hadiya, also known as Abu Ubeida al-Libi, had travelled to Egypt for medical ...

    Hadiya is the head of the militia known as Revolutionaries Operation Room, which claims to answer to the Libyan army but is widely seen as operating independently.
    Last year the Libyan government blamed the group for the abduction of the prime minister, Ali Zidan, who was briefly kidnapped by gunmen in Tripoli.

    On Saturday the militia's spokesman, Adel al-Ghiryani, said that Hadiya, also known as Abu Ubeida al-Libi,
    had travelled to Egypt for medical reasons but was detained there.

    The Abu Obeida Al-Jarah Brigade is a secretive brigade  july 30 2011

    The Egyptians’ release was confirmed after Hadeia, head of the Operations Centre of Libya’s Thuwar (revolutionaries), announced his release himself on television.
    “The five diplomats and a further member of staff of the Egyptian embassy are free,” Libyan Deputy Foreign Minister Abderrazak al-Gridi told AFP.
    “They are at home and they are safe. They were treated well and their health is good,” Gridi said, without elaborating on the circumstances of their release.

    A Libyan security official speaking to AFP on condition of anonymity said the kidnappers freed the six as part of a deal between Tripoli and Cairo. The official said the kidnappers, who have not been identified, demanded the release of Hadeia, also known by his nom de guerre Abu Obeida.

  50. TRIPOLI, Aug. 1, 2014: Mohammed Ghiryani (C), spokesman of the Islamic militias
    who surrounded the Tripoli International Airport, speaks during a news conference, confirming the continuation of the military operation to control the airport and some of the surrounding camps, in Tripoli, Libya, Aug. 1, 2014.


    May 4, 2014 Libya's parliament swore in a new prime minister supported by Islamists despite a disputed vote Sunday and walkouts from a largely secular bloc,
    Despite the protest from a number of non-Islamist parliamentarians, the interim parliament swore in 42-year-old businessman Ahmed Matiq in a rushed televised session headed by the second deputy of parliament, Saleh al-Makhzoum, and member of the Muslim Brotherhood's Justice and Construction Party.

    Lawmaker Mohammed Samoud confirmed Matiq, from Libya's third-largest city, Misrata, won.
    Matiq, educated in Britain, runs a group of hotels and is involved in construction.

    But Mahmoud Salama al-Ghiryani, a lawmaker and supporter of Matiq, said the adjourning of the session was not legal and that most of the members in the house were against it.

    Omar al-Hassi, a political science professor from the country's second-largest city of Benghazi, ran against Matiq.
    He is backed by the hard-line Islamist bloc in parliament.

    A rival body, the General National Congress, has named pro-Islamist figure Omar al-Hassi to form a "salvation government."

    Interim authorities have been steadily losing ground
    to the militias and the Fajr Libya (Libya Dawn)
    mainly Islamist alliance, which seized Tripoli airport on August 22 after weeks of fierce fighting with nationalist rivals.


    The day after Tripoli fell to the Islamist group Libya Dawn, Ghariani sent congratulations to the Islamist militants using his internet channel, Tanasuh: “I congratulate the revolutionaries in their victory, I give blessing to the martyrs,” he said.


    The Guardian reported on August 29th that the Foreign Office had confirmed that Ghariani was residing in the UK, from where he is encouraging his followers to overthrow the client regime in LIbya.

    Posted: Saturday, August 20, 2011
    A representative for Tripoli on the rebel leadership council told the AP that rebels were surrounding almost every neighborhood in the capital,
    and there was especially heavy fighting in Fashloum, Tajoura and Souq al-Jomaa.

    Those three neighborhoods have been bubbling with discontent ever since the beginning of the Libya uprising. They paid the highest price in deaths when protesters took the streets in anti-Gadhafi protests, only to be met with live ammunition by government militiamen.

    “We don’t have exact numbers yet, but we are hearing that many fighters have fallen — very likely over 100,’’ said Mohammed al-Harizi.

    A second case, known as “the Slovenian company case” (a reference to the company that ran the compound before it was taken over, as a makeshift prison) involves five named defendants:

    Hamza Mabruk Muftah Harizi,

    Marwan Emhemed Khalifa Gaddoura, Musbah Mohamed Musbah Ajim, Naji Massoud Najjar
    and Sami Saleh Ragie. Their trial is set for 8 January 2013.

    The third case involves just one defendant: Sergeant-Major Hamza Mabrouk Muftah El-Harizi.
    He is accused of mass murder. This case is said to be being handled by a military court.

    National Transitional Council justice coordinator Jamal Bennor said now is not the time
    to be putting former rebels on trial.

    comment : Bennor Marwan :
    You need to get you facts right.
    This guy [Ibrahim Sadeq Khalifa ] is NOT from Tajura
    he is from Tarhona but lives in Tajura.

    The rebel-led Tripoli brigade launched a fresh offensive Saturday in a southern suburb, mopping up pockets of pro-Gadhafi fighters

    who are believed to have retreated there after a three-day battle for control of the nearby international airport.

    With Moammar Gadhafi on the run after a 42-year reign,
    thousands of exiled Libyans are preparing to return home to rebuild their country. WSJ's Neil Hickey reports from Washington.

    A phalanx of 40 pick-up trucks
    armed with anti-aircraft weapons and heavy machine guns
    and brimming with fighters drove out of Tripoli in the early afternoon
    to join units in Qasr Ben Ghasir, located approximately 30 miles south of the capital.

    Rebels now control the airport, but it is not open and not operational. There is at least one plane on the runway that has been bombed.

    Then on Sunday, August 21, the sound of automatic rifle fire could be heard
    for up to half an hour

    A few days ago I passed under the bullet-scarred archway at the entrance to its headquarters in Tripoli that stands topped with a giant eagle, the brigade’s symbol.

    Targeted heavily by Nato’s war planes, the main command buildings that sit within this fortress compound the size of a small town lie smashed by hi-tech bombs.

    But nearby there were other more visceral secrets that the Khamis Brigade had tried to hide
    Rebae Fereg Kashot lives only a few hundred yards from the Khamis HQ.

    Every day during the breaking of the Ramadan fast he would take dinner to an old man
    who lived right next to a compound that sat behind the headquarters.
    That same old man had begun to tell him of what he was hearing and seeing.

    “He said he heard shooting every night, and people screaming,” Kashot recalls.

    Then on Sunday, August 21, the sound of automatic rifle fire could be heard
    for up to half an hour.

    Kashot himself approached the compound but was stopped by a soldier
    who he described as one of Gaddafi’s mercenaries from the West African country of Chad.

    In the days that followed, he and other local people uncovered the terrible evidence inside the compound of one of the worst war crimes to date during this six-month Libyan uprising.

    “Can you smell it?” asks Kashot. “Look at these flies.


    The refrigerated truck has echoes from elsewhere: a Dr Essam Ben Masoud reported to Rick Gladstone of the New York Times following the fall of Bab Al- Aziziya:

    The next day “we found a refrigerator truck — like a refrigerator for transporting cheese — with 28 dead bodies in it,” Dr. Masoud said, suggesting that the Qaddafi forces had killed people in the street and hid the bodies

    More bodies turned up in the streets on Friday, where occasional volleys of gunfire were heard. Near Colonel Qaddafi’s abandoned citadel, Bab al-Aziziya, rebels began hauling away nine bloated bodies.
    he face of one was so badly decayed it appeared charred.
    Maggots crawled over the torso of another.
    “Only a butcher could commit a massacre like this,” said Sami Omar, a rebel.

    Six were dumped near a trash receptacle,

    two left under a stairwell

    and one thrown in a large ditch, his hands apparently cuffed.
    Rebels said Qaddafi loyalists had killed them as they celebrated his fall.

    But one resident said they were his fighters, slain by rebels.

      November 21, 2011
      The new army, which numbers a few thousand and includes many soldiers
      who deserted Colonel Qaddafi’s military, needs barracks, uniforms, vehicles, boots, radios, even flashlights, officers say. Rather than having a central unified command, it is being formed by distinct committees in different cities,
      following the model of the diverse bunch of militias that fought the war against the dictatorship. And perhaps most troubling, the militias across the country are already refusing to take its orders.

      The army has already become one of several armed forces vying for power, both military and political.

      Abdel Hakim Belhaj, the army’s leader in Tripoli, told Prime Minister Abdel Rahim el-Keeb in a speech last week that he expected him to keep his promise to include former rebels in cabinet posts as Mr. Keeb was forming his government.

      In an interview, Mr. Belhaj, an Islamist who fought against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan but is now critical of Al Qaeda, said the army would give the militia fighters “a choice to join the Ministry of Defense or police, or give up their weapons and return to civilian life.”

      But one of the militias, from Zawiyah, has already broken its promise to keep its weapons at home, setting up a roadblock on the main road a couple of miles west of the army base as a sign of resistance.
      Armed with heavy machine guns atop pickup trucks, the militiamen say they are going nowhere. Meanwhile the army troops are staying at the base, putting a fresh coat of white paint on the outer walls and beginning to clean up the grounds.

      “We can’t tell them to surrender their guns,” said Capt. Hakim el-Agouri, the local army commander in Al Maya. He shrugged. “There are people out there who won’t give up their weapons, and if that is the case, there won’t be stability in Libya.”
      camp of the "27" under the leadership of its president Shaaban Hedia nicknamed "Abu Obeida Zawiya."

    2. In the summer of 2012, American Green Berets began refurbishing a Libyan military base 27 kilometers west of Tripoli in order to hone the skills of Libya’s first Western-trained special operations counter-terrorism fighters.
      Less than two years later, that training camp is now being used by groups with direct links to al Qaeda to foment chaos in post-Qaddafi Libya…………
      ………Things went downhill for Camp 27 in June of 2013 when two rival militias stormed the training facility and seized the equipment therein. At the time, no U.S. personnel were on the base, according to two U.S. officials who spoke to The Daily Beast on condition of anonymity. The only soldiers protecting the base were local Libyans.
      Nonetheless, the base itself had a number of American weapons that wound up in the hands of the raiding militias. Those raids were first reported by Fox News. The U.S. defense official confirmed these reports and said the militias were able to seize night vision equipment, M-4 rifles, pistols, military vehicles, and ammunition……..
      …And now these militants have a base close to Tripoli, and an array of advanced tactical gear. “The biggest challenge we have is all the arms ammunition and explosives from Libya that continue to move throughout the region to northwest Africa,” he told the committee. When asked if those arms have aided al Qaeda in Africa, Rodriguez answered, “It continues to support them throughout northwest Africa.” – http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/04/23/jihadists-now-control-secretive-u-s-base-in-libya.html

    Tuesday August 22, 2011 Nato warplanes have hit at least 40 targets in and around Tripoli

    in the past two days
    - the highest number on a single geographic location since the bombing started more than five months ago, officials said.

    NATO stepped up bombardments in and around Tripoli, hitting 22 targets August 20, with assistance of six armed U.S. Predator drones, reported the Post. According to Pentagon figures, Washington—which since April has organized key military support but left most airstrikes to London and Paris—nearly doubled air attacks on Libya August 11-22, compared to sortie strikes the previous four months.

    In a sign of the coordination among rebels, as the main force moved into the city from the west, a second force of 200 opposition fighters from the city of Misrata further east landed by boat in the capital. They brought weapons and ammunition for Tripoli residents who join the rebellion, said Munir Ramzi of the rebels' military council in Misrata.

    "We received weapons by sea from Benghazi. They sent us weapons in boats," said Ibrahim Turki,
    a rebel in the Tripoli neighbourhood of Tajoura, which saw heavy fighting the past two days. "Without their weapons, we would not have been able to stand in the face of the mighty power of Gadhafi forces."

    Eyewitness Asil al-Tajuri told Aljazeera Arabic by telephone that the revolutionaries in Tajoura captured 6 government troops, and that they freed 500 prisoners from the Hamidiya penitentiary.

    The events that took place in the town of Warshefana, between December 19- 29, 2013, are the best example of the tragedy of blind tribal zeal afflicting Libya. Islamist tribal militias stormed the Warshefana area between Tripoli and al-Zawiya, 40 kilometers from the capital, with thousands of men armed with heavy, medium, and light weapons, including guns, tanks, armored vehicles, and rocket launchers.

    1. Sept. 15, 2014 The fighters form part of a militia coalition that took effective control of Tripoli two weeks ago.

      They have been heavily shelling Warshefana from their surrounding positions
      for the last week

      and have so far killed more than 70 residents, including at least 12 children.

      An additional 140 are believed to be injured.

      The fighters, primarily from the town of Zawiyah, are aligned with the Fajr Libya (Libya Dawn) coalition that captured Tripoli International Airport on Aug. 23.

      The group has re-declared the authority of the previously disbanded Islamist-aligned General National Congress (GNC) in the capital, in opposition to the newly elected parliament in Tobruk.

      The Zawiyan forces are led by Shaaban Hadia, also known as Abu Obeida al-Zawi, a prominent commander and head of the Libyan Revolutionary Operations Room, the group that kidnapped former Prime Minister Ali Zeidan in October.

      Hadia was arrested in Egypt in January but then released in exchange for the freedom of five Egyptian diplomats taken hostage in Libya by his fighters.

    Sep 29, 2014 Rival Libyan lawmakers held talks brokered by a United Nations envoy
    on Monday, in the first attempt to bridge the gap between warring groups that left the North African nation torn between two governments and parliaments.At a press conference held in western city of Ghadamis, Bernardino Leon said the goal of the talks is to reach a "complete ceasefire". He described Monday's round of talks as "historic" and said that the two parties were sitting together "in brotherly atmosphere" and engaging to "overcome their differences through a political dialogue”.

    The talks included lawmakers from the two parliaments.

    Libya witnessed a spasm of violence this summer when militias mainly from the western city of Misrata and groups allied to Islamists swept through the capital
    Leon said that the two sides agreed to discuss airports which have been closed
    and work towards opening all of them.

    The announcement by the Libya Dawn umbrella group on Tuesday followed the first round
    of UN-brokered talks between Libya's rival lawmakers held on Monday in Ghadames,
    a southern town near the Algerian border.

    The talks are an attempt to bridge the gap between warring groups that have left Libya torn between two rival governments and parliaments.

    Libya Dawn, which controls Tripoli and which is affiliated with the militia from the western city of Misrata, said on its Facebook page on Tuesday that the only way to end the fighting is to disarm its rivals and arrest their leaders.


    Fajr Libya is a coalition of Islamist militias, mainly from Misrata, east of Tripoli.
    Ansar al-Sharia controls around 80% of the eastern city of Benghazi.

    2 August 2014 Faraj Nejim, a lawmaker and head of a committee responsible for moving the parliament to its new venue, told The Associated Press that

    some of the lawmakers who didn't attend the session are from the city of Misrata — known as a stronghold of Islamic factions.

    Libya: Information about the horrific reprisals by extremists Sep 27, 2014
    Drawing the latest report from the area Rishvana southwest of the capital Tripoli,
    a grim picture of the humanitarian situation after the control processes of the so-called forces of "the dawn of Libya" and "lion", which includes fighters from Misrata
    and its militant groups allies on this area recently.

    The Shura Council of Elders Borcvana said in a report issued on Friday, that about
    half a million people have been forced
    to leave their homes to seek refuge with relatives or areas near Rishvana or out of the country in Tunisia or Egypt,
    pointing out that these numbers are increasing due to the deteriorating situation and the growing reprisals
    and stealing and looting and burning down houses.

    The report considered that the attacks of the armed formations on the area did not respect the basic principles of international humanitarian law, pointing out that the process of displacement took place without any interference or help from the Libyan government or humanitarian organizations
    also the government did not provide any services for the entry of humanitarian aid.

    It accused the armed formations dugging graves in the region
    and taking the remains of some to the cemetery Alcdoh in Azizia and Kharouba Bakrkozh cemetery and cemetery boys Issa gospel Bank.

  91. Oct 12, 2014, Fighting between Islamist militias and rival groups in a western Libyan town has killed at least 23 people, a hospital official said Sunday.

    Emad Khalifa Abdul-Salam of Gharyan hospital, southwest of the capital Tripoli, said the ongoing, intense battle in the nearby town of Kikla left another 43 people wounded, including 10 in critical condition, mainly from shrapnel wounds.

    The fighting is part of a nationwide power struggle between Islamist-backed militias,
    which have seized control of most of Tripoli, including its international airport,
    and their opponents, which back an internationally-recognized government based in the country's far east.

    The anti-Islamist Zintan militia, named for its hometown in the west, attacked Kikla— an Islamist stronghold— on Saturday.

    A commander in the Islamist militias, known as the Dawn of Libya, said the Zintan militia, with the backing of local tribes, was able to seize parts of Kikla and briefly cut roads between Kikla and Gharyan, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) southwest of Tripoli.

    But the Dawn of Libya fighters forced them to retreat, allowing traffic to resume,
    the commander said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

    Facebook pages affiliated with the Zintan militias showed pictures of Dawn of Libya vehicles they claimed to have seized in the fighting.

    Fighting in the east has meanwhile intensified as troops loyal to Gen. Khalifa Hifter have battled more radical Islamic militias. The two sides are currently fighting over an eastern airport.

  92. Oct 12, 2014, In a rare visit to Tripoli on Saturday, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged all factions to stop the fighting and endorsed a reconciliation process that launched talks between rival parliamentarians. The U.N.-sponsored talks also aim to include armed groups.

    November 2, 2011 Ban during his visit went to a mass grave and met the families
    of people killed by Kadhafi's forces, UN deputy spokesman Eduardo del Buey said.

    Ban did not visit Libya during the eight months of the armed uprising
    which led to the fall of the Libyan regime and the death of Kadhafi on October 20.

    On 6 June 2011, Ban Ki-moon formally announced his candidacy for a second consecutive term as Secretary-General of the United Nations.[65]

      The Eid celebrations had began late on Tuesday with bursts of red tracer rounds fired into the sky as a substitute for fireworks.

      Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the ICC prosecutor, said he may also apply for an arrest warrant for Khamis, after Human Rights Watch said members of the Khamis Brigade, a force commanded by him, appeared to have carried out summary executions of detainees whose bodies were found in a warehouse in Tripoli.

      On 29 August, it was reported that anti-Gaddafi fighters 60 km south of Tripoli claimed that a NATO Apache helicopter had fired on
      Khamis Gaddafi's Toyota Land Cruiser, destroying the vehicle

      On 22 August, Al Jazeera reported that the bodies of both Khamis Gaddafi
      and his father's intelligence chief Abdullah Senussi may have been discovered
      in Tripoli during the battle for the city.[24]

      However, a rebel commander later stated that he believed Khamis Gaddafi was in Bab al-Azizia.[25]

      The refrigerated truck has echoes from elsewhere: a Dr Essam Ben Masoud reported to Rick Gladstone of the New York Times following the fall of Bab Al- Aziziya:
      The next day “we found a refrigerator truck — like a refrigerator for transporting cheese — with 28 dead bodies in it,” Dr. Masoud said, suggesting that the Qaddafi forces had killed people in the street and hid the bodies

      The brigade was involved in the August assault on Zawiya outside Tripoli
      and was one of the first units to enter and hold areas of Tripoli,

      which it attacked from three directions.

      It was reported as leading the shock assault on Gaddafi’s Bal al Azizia fortress.

      After the fall of Tripoli, the brigade was given particular responsibility
      for guarding strategic locations and infrastructure in the city while hunting down
      remaining Gaddafi supporters.

      a man named Hamza Hirazi, ordered him by phone to execute six prisoners,

      including Omar (Zenoppe) and several officers who had been arrested for helping the rebels.

    On Saturday, a force allied to the Tripoli-based government, whose opponents say has links to Islamists, moved along the coast to seize eastern oil facilities and fight troops of former general Khalifa Haftar loyal to Thinni.
    Clashes continued on Sunday with both sides claiming progress as Thinni's forces sent jets to bomb the rival force. Al Nabaa television showed troops loyal to Tripoli loading tanks and artillery guns.

    National Oil Corp, headquartered in Tripoli, shut down production at the Es Sider and Ras Lanuf ports, whose fields had produced some 350,000 barrels a day, or more than half of the country's crude output. Most staff left when the state firm declared force majeure for both ports.

    Some 800 km to the west, near the Tunisian border, jet fighters under Thinni's command bombed forces loyal to the Tripoli government while Zintani tribesmen - his local allies - tried to take the Ras Jdir border crossing to Tunisia.

      During its 112th session in Geneva from 7 to 31 October 2014,

      in the case of Saleh Salem Hmeed and several members of his family,
      who were arrested,detained and tortured
      by the security services of Gaddafi's former regime.

      Libya: 23 years in prison for a crime Saleh Hmeed never committed

      By Feb. 15 of last year, about a month into the uprising, the doors at most of the country’s prisons and jails began to swing open, allowing thousands of criminals to flee.

      According to government officials, about 26,000 criminals — political prisoners were kept in separate facilities and remained in lockdown — were serving time when the escapes began.

      Almost 200 of those escapees were facing the death penalty for serious crimes, including murder.

      “There was panic inside and outside the prisons,” said Dya Adin Badi,
      who, at the outset of protests last year was in charge of seven detention facilities stretching from Ras Lanuf through Sirte to Misrata.
      “The guards had fled. There was no security, no staff.
      We didn’t want a riot on our hands.”

      Badi said angry crowds began to form outside his prisons.
      Relatives began demanding the release of loved ones, many of whom,
      Badi said, were facing false or excessive sentences.
      Hundreds joined the rebel frontlines.

      Several climbed the ranks to become commanders.
      Many were killed in battle. Others simply fled, their whereabouts unknown.


      Since the end of the revolution, both ex-rebel militias and police have also administered their own form of justice, also in a “climate of impunity.” While members of Gaddafi forces are hunted down and imprisoned — so far without formal charges or access to legal aid — those who commit offenses from within the revolutionary forces continue to go unpunished.

    Islamists of Libya's Darna form coalition to against army attacks
    The formation of "Shura Council of the Mujahedeen of Darna" was announced on Friday
    to include various Jihadist fighters against any attacks of the army and forces of major general Khalifa Haftar, local media reported on Saturday.

    The Islamist militants, including Ansar al-Sharia militia, announced the formation of the "Shura Council of the Benghazi rebels" to fight Haftar's forces after the army commander announced the military operation "Libyan Dignity" on May 16, which he said aims to eradicate "terrorism from the country."

    Qatar funneled much of its aid through Ali al-Sallabi, say NTC-allied officials.
    They say the cleric's aid network, manned with his associates, allowed affiliated militias to receive the lion's share of both guns and money.

    The military operational commander of the islamist Shura Council of Benghazi is Wissam Ben Hamid (left).

    - Islamist fighters launched a three-pronged attack Saturday on a key oil region in eastern Libya but were pushed back by pro-government forces, military officials said

    The attack came as Islamist militias in the eastern town of Derna say they have formed a new coalition ahead of an expected assault by pro-government forces

    Islamist-allied militias from the western city of Misrata clashed with an eastern militia
    that holds a major oil terminal on Saturday, in violence that killed at least two people, Libyan officials said.
    The officials say the Tripoli-based government — backed by Misrata militias and Islamist factions — ordered its forces to "liberate" the Sidra terminal.

    The officials said that aircraft affiliated to Omar al-Hassi's rival government
    carried airstrikes targeting an air base in the central city of Sirte but caused no major casualties.

    An aide to al-Hassi, the Tripoli-based prime minister, said that the assault on Sidra is the beginning of a wider offensive called "Sunrise."

    Al-Hassi's allied militias launched an earlier offensive called "Libya Dawn" in Tripoli to take control of the capital and its airport.

    Hassi said Libya might break up if the international community allowed Thinni to appoint its own NOC chairman and eventually form an eastern oil company. Fri Nov 28, 2014

      HoR 'names pro-federalist' as new head of Audit Bureau

      03 Nov 2013

      Eastern Libya has declared an autonomous regional government with an official ceremony, challenging the country's weak central government that failed to assume unifying power over rebels and various tribes since the 2011 war toppled Muammar Gaddafi.

      Leaders of an autonomy movement met on Sunday in the small town of Ajdabiya
      to launch the government under the name of Barqa, or Cyrenaica as it is also known, supporters said.

      A pro-federalist television station showed more than 20 ministers taking the oath
      at a podium decorated with a Cyrenaica flag.

      They were joined by the tribal leader Ibrahim Jathran, the former head of Libya's Petroleum Protection Force in charge of guarding oil facilities, who defected in the summer and seized the biggest ports Ras Lanuf and Es-Sider with his troops.

      Jathran was standing next to the self-declared Prime Minister Abd-Rabbo al-Barassi, a defected air force commander.

    2. Tue Dec 16, 2014
      On Monday, a force allied to the rival assembly based in Tripoli, the General National Congress (GNC), moved to the east
      to try seize the Es Sider and Ras Lanuf oil ports.

      Both terminals have closed, drying exports of an estimated 300,000 barrels a day of oil.

      The recognized government, forced to work out of the east since losing control of Tripoli in August, launched more air strikes on the rival forces positioned near Es Sider, eastern officials said.
      They also said the rival force had for the first time used a jet to support its troops, though its spokesman Ismail al-Shukri denied this.

      "We confirm the campaign will continue," Shukri told reporters, adding that oil facilities would not be harmed.
      GNC spokesman Omar Hmeidan said the assembly was supporting the U.N. talks but said the venue needed to change and talks should reflect that the GNC was the legitimate body.

      "Members of the GNC will attend the talks as representatives of the legislative body," he said, proposing to hold the next round in the southern town of Hun.

      The House of Representatives, the legislature aligned with recognized Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni, said in a statement it was supporting the U.N.-led dialogue but rejected talks with GNC members and its armed factions.


    3. Fighting continues around the key cities of Ras Lanuf and Sidra after the start
      on Saturday of an offensive by the Libya Dawn camp dubbed ‘Operation Sunrise for the Liberation of Oil Ports‘.

      The operation is aimed at dislodging federalist and Tubruq-aligned forces
      from key oil sites in Eastern Libya and the Tripoli-based establishment maintains it is legitimated by a 2013 GNC-issued order to liberate the then federalist-blockaded ports.

      On Saturday, Libya Dawn forces were repelled for the most part by Operation Dignity airstrikes targeting them around the town of Bin Jawad, an urban centre located approximately 30 kilometres to the West of Sidra on the costal road.

      On Sunday, however, fighting involved ground forces on both sides and engulfed oil terminal facilities as well. In particular, reports emerged of Grad rockets being fired towards Sidra oil port while fighters from Operation Sunrise arrived at one point within half kilometer from it before being repelled by further airstrikes. As a result of this, Sidra’s oil port shut down its operations.

      On Saturday 13 December, air forces belonging to Khalifa Haftar’s Operation Dignity attacked military forces and convoys of the Misratan-led Libya Dawn camp that were heading towards the oil ports of Ras Lanuf and Sidra.

      The Misratan moves comes after weeks of talking about pushing Eastward
      to challenge the HoR and the Federalists control of these key locations


    4. HoR 'names pro-federalist' as new head of Audit Bureau 17-12-2014 :

      The CBL has not been the only body putting a squeeze on HoR spending.

      Libya’s Audit Bureau announced last week that transactions from the CBL
      to ministries and public companies would come under new restrictions.
      The CBL is now only authorised to pay for public sector salaries and expenses below 200,000 Libyan dinars ($163,750).

      “The new regulations are in response to a crisis over the CBL’s assets, with the rival assemblies – the HoR and revived GNC – vying for control,” reported Libya Monitor.

      The Audit Bureau is an independent body based in Tripoli that is answerable to the “legislative branch”,
      according to MEE’s Libyan source, who said their decision pointed to increased restrictions on the HoR.

      “The Audit Bureau has the power to block any project expenditures by government entities,” they said.

      “If the coordinate with the CBL, as they appear to be, they could create another layer of resistance to government expenditure, as spending has to clear the CBL accounts and seek approval by the bureau.”

    the former American diplomat James Atkins has described the as-Senussi monarchy as “one of the most corrupt in the world.”


    In 1969, the British Special Air Service (S.A.S.) was contacted by the Libyan Royal Family and planned an assassination to restore the Libyan monarchy. The plan was dubbed the "Hilton Assignment", named after a Libyan jail.

    The plan was to release 150 political prisoners from a jail in Tripoli as a catalyst for a general uprising.
    The prisoners would be recruited for a coup attempt, and the British agents would leave them to take over the nation. The plan was called off at a late stage by the British Secret Intelligence Service because the United States government decided that Gaddafi was anti-Marxist and therefore acceptable.[363][364]

    The London-based Al-Arab al-Youm newspaper quoted the commander of the air force in the pro-Heftar Libyan National Army, Brigadier Saqr Jeroshi as warning against a “hellish” scheme in which Sudan provides personnel and weapons, aimed at empowering the Muslim Brotherhood and its allied the Jihadist militias to control the eastern city of Benghazi.

    "This scheme approached its final stages, where the Muslim Brotherhood has stepped up its actions in support of its militias that are armed with personnel and ammunitions from Sudan," benefiting from close ties with the Sudanese government, which he described
    as a Muslim Brotherhood one.

    He added that the army confirmed information that a Muslim Brotherhood figure by the name Ahmed Al-Zuway, who has a tribal links in Sudan, is overseeing the process of bringing in arms and personnel from Sudan to Kufra in cars and trucks.

    “The process of the transfer of arms and personnel from Sudan to Libya has taken in the last period a remarkable development, as planes were observed in the skies of the Sahara, coming from Sudan, in an effort to overthrow the city of Benghazi, to which hundreds of extremist groups from Misrata and Derna are flowing, in an effort to control it in favour of extremist groups."


    Already on Sunday, (20 february 2011 ) Sheikh Faraj al-Zuway, leader of the crucial al-Zuwayya tribe in eastern Libya, had threatened to cut oil exports to the West within 24 hours unless what he called the "oppression of protesters" in Benghazi was stopped.

    With unprecedented speed, the Court opened an investigation in early March
    and, in June 2011, issued arrest warrants for Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi, Saif al-Islam, and Abdullah al-Senussi.


    We urge you to send a clear message that, collectively, the international community,

    In 2011, the Alliance of Youth Movements rebranded as “Movements.org.” In 2012 Movements.org became a division of “Advancing Human Rights,” a new NGO set up by Robert L. Bernstein after he resigned from Human Rights Watch (which he had originally founded) because he felt it should not cover Israeli and US human rights abuses.28

    Advancing Human Rights aims to right Human Rights Watch’s wrong by focusing exclusively on “dictatorships.”29 Cohen stated that the merger of his Movements.org outfit with Advancing Human Rights was “irresistible,” pointing to the latter’s “phenomenal network of cyberactivists in the Middle East and North Africa.”30

    He then joined the Advancing Human Rights board, which also includes Richard Kemp,
    the former commander of British forces in occupied Afghanistan.31

    In mid February, Libyan dissident Najla Aburrahman begged Western media to pay attention to the bloodbath unfolding in her country. "If the Libyan protesters are ignored," she wrote, "the fear is that [Libyan dictator Moammar] Qaddafi—a man who appears to care little what the rest of the world thinks of him—will be able to seal the country off
    from foreign observers, and ruthlessly crush any uprising before it even has a chance to begin."

    Amnesty has more details about one ghost-detainee:
    Khalid al-Sharif, known as Abu Hazem, spent about five years detained in Libya before his release in March 2010. He agreed to talk to Amnesty International.
    He described his arrest by US and Pakistani forces in Peshawar on 3 April 2002 along with Mohamed Shu’iya, known as Hassan Ruba’i and his detention in various facilities in Afghanistan and Pakistan – in Peshawar, Islamabad, Kabul and Bagram.

    Al-Senussi is now being held in the small maximum security Hudba al-Gassi prison in Tripoli, where many former members of the Qaddafi regime are being held.
    The current roster of prisoners in the facility includes three former Prime Ministers and former military intelligence chief Mustafa al-Kharroubi.


    Al-Senussi, who faces the death penalty if convicted, is rumored to have been tortured
    on his arrival in Tripoli and to have attempted suicide while in Hudba al-Gassi,

    by the man responsible for keeping him behind bars,

    Zeidan appointed Khaled al-Sharif as deputy defense minister.

    Sharif’s appointment to the post of deputy defense minister was part of Zeidan’s efforts to enlist the heads of the militias - including the Islamic ones - to work for the government,

    Jun. 9, 2011

    The report, published Wednesday by three U.N.-appointed experts, says the violations committed by pro-Gadhafi forces were severe enough to also constitute crimes against humanity. They said violations by opposition armed forces, however, were not severe or widespread enough to be considered crimes against humanity.

    It wasn’t until July of 2011 that HRW would admit that Libyan rebels were carrying out systematic abuses of their own, and even then they were whitewashed and excused.

     "I really fear vigilante justice and retribution and attacks by civilians against other civilians," said Richard Sollom, deputy director of Physicians for Human Rights,
    who is back from a June fact-finding mission in Misrata, Libya.

      Sollom said Monday that his Boston-based group knew of about 500 Darfuris "who are desperately trying to get out of Libya. They have no money, they are basically homeless because they are from Darfur, and they very much fear for their lives because of the color of their skin."
      Guest workers from Sudan, Chad, Darfur and other sub-Saharan African locales have been targeted in part because Gadhafi did hire foreign African mercenaries, Sollom said.

        New York-based Human Rights Watch said Sunday that the evidence it has collected so far "strongly suggests that (Moammar Gadhafi's) government forces went on a spate of arbitrary killing as Tripoli was falling."


    3.14pm: Human Rights Watch Richard Dickler said Gaddafi's alleged war crimes should still be investigated, even if he has been killed today.

    Impunity Rules: Libya Passes Controversial Amnesty law

    Impunity was a serious problem. The scarcely functioning criminal courts struggled to try abusive Qadhafi-era officials, but generally skirted the pressing problem of abuses during the year by post-Qadhafi militias, in part because of militia intimidation of judges.

    When authorities did attempt to conduct trials, threats and acts of violence often influenced and curtailed judicial proceedings.

    Aside from adopting but not yet implementing legislation to provide a new legal framework and sponsoring dialogues on its implementation throughout the country, the government did not take concrete steps by year's end to advance transitional justice.

    There were rare investigations and still fewer prosecutions of those believed to have committed abuses.

  114. Richard Sollom, the lead author of PHR's report, deputy director of Physicians for Human Rights : Sollom said Monday that his Boston-based group
    This writer called the Boston office, the home office, to complain about the decision to back the Sanctions bill. I was given to understand by one staffer that I was not the only member to register dissatisfaction. I inquired who made this decision and how it was made.

    Initially I was told that such decisions were not made in the home office but at a smaller office in Washington, which works closely with Congress.

    In a subsequent email I was told that “the policy and program decisions are made by our Executive Management team.” Who is the “Executive Management Team”?

    This member does not know and has not been told.

    Furthermore the PHR web site does not contain any information about the Executive Management Team, as far as I can see.

    Are personnel of the U.S. government consulted in such deliberations? (The PHR membership clearly is not.)

    Canadian oil firm Suncor, the manager recounted how locals defended the site
    from looters and attacks during the war and were ready to face more action.


    Abelulla Mahdy volunteered to fly a team of around 20 of the company's Libyan employees past the battlefield at Sirte, Gaddafi's hometown and the city outside which he was killed last week, and over the Sahara for nearly 200 km (125 miles) to a base at an oil field
    called Amal, an hour's drive to the Wintershall site.

    The flight required special permission from NATO and the usual company plane had to be left behind in Tripoli.

  120. The Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) played a vital role to expel the Gaddafi elements
    from the city of Kufra (7). They then recaptured it again, through an attack via three axes managed through the destruction of most of the Gaddafi battalions.


    One of the biggest successes of NISS was the process of normalization between Sudanese government and Chad, which led both governments to sign a military and security protocol (8) in January 2011 to protect their borders (1280 km).

    Now the borders between Sudan and Libya are also under the responsibility of a joint Sudanese-Libyan force,

    According to a Wall Street Journal article on Oct. 17, 2011, 20,000 tons of weapons were provided not to the Transitional National Council, but directly to militias run by Belhadj
    in 18 shipments.

    A dozen other Qatari-funded shipments came to Libyan rebels allied with the LIFG via Sudan.

    The shipments continued in September even after the fall of Tripoli.


    August 28, 2011 Speaking to the press following the meeting, the NTC chairman expressed the gratitude of the Libyan opposition to the Sudanese government
    for the support provided in their fight against the regime of the Colonel Muammar Gaddafi during the past six months.

    "It is time to announce that Sudan provided military support to the revolutionaries,"
    Jalil said adding that this support helped them to "liberate some cities,
    such as the city of Kufra" in the remote southeastern desert.


    Nov 25, 2011 Meanwhile, Mustafa Abdel Jalil, the leader of the NTC, visited Kartoum yesterday, the capital of Sudan, to thank President Omar al-Bashir for his assistance
    in supplying weapons via Egypt to the NTC fighters in their battle against Gaddafi.

    “If [it were] not for Sudanese military assistance, it would not have been possible to liberate Kufra,” said Jalil addressing a Sudanese conference for the ruling party.
    Kufra is a remote town in the south east of Libya not far from the Sudanese border.

    Libya expels Sudanese diplomat over allegations of supporting militias
    Sunday 7 September 2014
    September 6, 2014 (KHARTOUM) – The Libyan government ordered the Sudanese military attaché to leave the country, amid accusations by Tripoli about the involvement of Khartoum in supporting some of the Libyan warring factions.

    A statement by the Libyan government on Saturday night claimed that a Sudanese military transport plane bound for Tripoli airport, that is currently under the control of an Islamist armed group, entered its airspace.

  121. Oct. 1, 2014,
    The Libyan boarder is totally secured,
    especially after the victory of our allies (Libya Dawn Forces) [Ed note: see here] in Tripoli.

    We managed to reach to them the weapons and military equipment donated by Qatar and Turkey and we formed a joint operations room under a colonel for coordination purposes with them on how to administer the military operations.

    Turkey and Qatar provided us with information in favor of the revolutionaries on top of the information collected by our own agents that benefit them to win the war and control the whole country. [Emphasis ours]

    On December 4, 2014 Maghreb Confidential, a newspaper published in Paris

    and focusing on reviewing political and economic events in the North Africa,
    reported on a secret meeting in Algiers between two iconic Libyan leaders.

    These are Ali Sallabi, a theologist known for his clerical views, presently the spiritual father of the Al-Fajr Islamist coalition,
    and Mahmoud Jibril, the leader of so-called secular coalition, the National Forces Alliance,

    NFA. Judging by Mahmoud Jibril’s statements, NFA allegedly supports the new Libyan government in Tobruk.

    The meeting between the two leaders was preceded by a series of consultations
    between Mahmoud Jibril and Mustapha Nouh, the Islamist deputy intelligence chief.

    Seemingly, conditions of a possible compromise were discussed.
    The possibility of Ali Sallabi’s trip to Algeria was most likely discussed by the Islamist leaders in Tripoli and the trip was probably authorized by their military leader, Abdelhakim Belhadj.

  123. 2011 2015 French military intervention in Libya


    Slimane Bouchuiguir, Secretary General of LLHR, addressed the UN Human Rights Council at a special session in Geneva on 25 February 2011

    Getting the Libyans to Strasbourg was not easy. The meeting of the ALDE group was on 8 March,

    France recognised the TNC as the legitimate Libyan government on March 10th

    As in 2011 when Nicolas Sarkozy rejected any possibility of a negotiated option
    and chose war

    1. In the meantime, France has been stepping up its rhetoric about the presence of terrorist elements in southern Libya. France has also sent reinforcements to Niger and Chad, and refurbished an old military base at Madama, 100 km from the border with Libya, while putting pressure on Chadian President to send forces to Libya to fight alongside the Tabu against the Tuareg. Recently, French Defense Minister Le Drian visited Nigel and before it Chad, calling explicitly for international action against terrorism in Libya.

      So the question that begs itself here is this: What is there in the Libyan south that France wants so badly?

      The Ubari region, the ancestral home of the Tuareg, floats on top of a sea of black gold. The region has many oil wells that the Gaddafi regime had closed down to preserve for future generations, and there are huge “virgin” oil reserves there ready for the taking. The Tibesti Mountains, meanwhile, the land of the Tabu tribes on the border between Libya and Chad, also sit on thousands of tons of gold and uranium.

      Then, perhaps, France’s share will be in the Libyan south. If Paris decides to go into southern Libya, it would be hitting more than one bird with just one stone: Energy sources in southern Libya will be in its hands, and the old Libyan-Chadian dispute over the Aouzou Strip will be rekindled, guaranteeing France a foothold in the area. More importantly, France will become a key player in sub-Saharan African countries, after a period of declining French influence in favor of the United States and China.


    2. I suppose this Charlie Hebdo war Hollande has declared will have some reason to take over / secure just that part of up-for-grabs Libya.

    French defense minister visits Niger military base

    French troops stationed in Mali could also be redeployed to Libya. According to France’s Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, a new “terrorist hotbed” has developed which is threatening the “sovereignty” of the US-NATO supported Libyan government:

    Wednesday, February 27, 2013 - 07:27 GMT
    A high-ranking official in the Libyan government said that France intends to establish
    a military base in the south of Libya.

    An agreement in this regard was made between the Prime Minister Ali Zeidan and the French government on the sidelines of the forum Friends of Libya, which was held in Paris earlier this month, according to the same source.

    Saturday 3 January 2015 15:27 GMT
    The official, who asked not to be named, told the newspaper on Saturday
    that the question currently under discussion in Paris is not whether France will launch strikes in crisis-hit Libya,
    but when.
    French military intervention in Libya 'within 3 months': sources

  125. Libya was a test case. The first war actually commanded by Africom, it proved remarkably successful – a significant regional power was destroyed without the loss of a single US or European soldier.
    But the significance of this war for Africom went much deeper than that for, in taking out Muammar Gaddafi, Africom had actually eliminated the project's fiercest adversary.







    Where AFRICOM Is Active In Africa – May 2013


    AFRICOM was separated by Washington’s strategists in 2008
    as an independent military structure “to organise an effective war on terror,
    to provide security for American economic interests in the region,
    and to prevent preferential access by other countries to
    the continent’s natural resources, in particular China, India, Japan, or Russia.”


    What If Everything You Know About Terrorism Is Wrong?

  126. After the assassination of Colonel Gaddafi in October 2011,
    the former French ambassador to Libya Christian Graeff
    told French radio station France Culture that it was responsible for the diffusion of lies
    and war propaganda on behalf of Nato throughout the war. 

    Graeff also warned the broadcasters that such disinformation could only work on the minds of serfs but not in a country of free minds.
