Libya: Army warns against foreign intervention in Libya

posted in: Africa

Tripoli, Libya (PANA) – The Libyan army has said although the continuing violence in Tripoli and Benghazi has made the north African country a fertile ground for foreign intervention, such a development would make Libya lose its sovereignty and the dignity of its people.

Army spokesperson, Colonel Ali al-Chikhi, said that those acts of violence were unilateral, planned and implemented against the state organizations by armed groups.

The statement urged the warring parties to stop the fighting and come together as a unified force capable of protecting the country.

Since the fall of the Mouammar Kadhafi regime in 2011, Libya has been going through persistent insecurity, fueled by the proliferation of arms and the absence of state security organs.
