Director of Moral Guidance of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Major General Khaled Al-Mahjoub, announced on Tuesday that the LNA forces launched “powerful strikes” on the sites of the mercenaries in Sebha, Southwestern Libya.
In press statements to Sky News, Al-Mahjoub said that the LNA is working to secure the areas of southern Libya. He added that there are attempts to move mercenaries in the southern Libyan region.
Al-Mahjoub went on saying that Turkey has interests in the continuing instability in Libya.
Earlier Tuesday, Tunisia, President of the UN Security Council this January, expressed its hope that the council would issue “as soon as possible” a resolution whereby an international mission would be deployed to monitor the ceasefire which has gone into effect in Libya since the fall.
“We hope that the resolution will be adopted as soon as possible. There is momentum, but it is a bit fragile,” Tunisian ambassador to the United Nations Tarek El Adab, said during a press conference.
El Adab added: “We need to adopt this mechanism (monitoring the ceasefire) and this depends on the negotiations that will take place between the Libyan parties and the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) based on the proposals of the UN Secretary-General.”
Tunisia, a non-permanent member of the Security Council until the end of 2021, assumed the rotating presidency of the Security Council in early January. Yet, the council’s agenda for the end of the month does not include any meeting on Libya.
