Beida, 24 April 2015:
Some members of the House of Representatives (HoR) have said they would like question the commander-in-chief . . .[restrict]of the armed forces, General Khalifa Hafter and his chief of staff Major General Abdul Razzaq Al-Nazhuri..
They say they want an update on the progress of the Libyan National Army (LNA) in Benghazi and wish, in particular, to know when the remainder of the city is likely to be in its control, HoR member Abdulsalam Shahay told the Libya Herald.
The same HoR members would also like to have a timeline for military action in Tripoli, Shahay said.
There are reports circulating that suggest the existence of deep divisions between the LNA commanders in Benghazi. Colonel Faraj Al-Barasi, who commands the Sabri front in the city and has complained repeatedly of munitions shortages, is perceived to be at serious odds withHafter.
The drawn-out nature of the battle in Benghazi has led senior military personnel and activists alike to suspect that Hafter has deliberately prolonged operations to gain the upper hand with military staff.
In addition to this, the lack of coordination with the LNA in the West and the South have further compounded frustrations among activists, especially after the recent clashes between Libya Dawn militias and pro-government groups in Tajoura and Fashloum.
