Tripoli, 29 October 2014:
Omar Al-Hassi, head of the antigovernment in Tripoli, has again lashed out against Khalifa Hafter as well as . . .[restrict]about recent statements forewarning of the “liberation” of Tripoli.
In televised remarks on Monday, Hassi said that Hafter’s campaign was “illegal”. He also criticised Hafter and Prime Minister Abdullah Al-Thinni’s government for leaving a wake of destruction by carrying out indiscriminate bombing campaigns that hit schools, homes and other civilian targets.
He stated, not for the first time, that the bombing campaigns in Tripoli, Benghazi, Derna and Gharian must have been carried out with the help of other countries, adding that the Libyan Air Force did not have the capacity to do it.
Hassi said that he held Thinni, Hafter, the House of Representatives and all the tribal leaders who support them responsible for the killings, looting and destruction that had taken place.
He also mentioned that Tripoli did not need to be “liberated” because it was already free. The people, he said, had expressed their thoughts on the matter their every Friday with the demonstrations held in Tripoli’s Martyrs Square. They did not want a return to chaos. [/restrict]
