EU confronted with escalation in Libya
The UN Security Council has called for an emergency meeting on to discuss the escalation in Libya‘s years-long power struggle, as a number of foreign powers urged restraint.
The president of the European Parliament called the EU to act in response to the decision of Marshall Khalifa Haftar (pictured) to send troop to Tripoli to neutralise the terrorists, and criminal gangs. The decision of the military commander Haftar is supported by Tobruk Parliament, concerned with further degradation of the security situation in Tripoli, and incapability of backed by the West Prime minister of the Government of National Accord (GNA) Fayez al-Sarraj to provide security in the capital.
Subsequently the West is gravely concerned with the fate of their loyal ally Fayez al-Sarraj, who is going to lose the grip on power, and the entire country would be united under the nationalist ruler Haftar, pursuing Libyan interest above all.
Zintan allies of Tobruk government issued a special press-release welcoming the decision of Marshall Haftar liberate Tripoli from terrorists.
