Mahmoud Al-Wirfalli (L) masterminds the crime

Khalifa Haftar's self-styled “Libyan National Army” has exhumed the body of Benghazi Shura Council commander Jalal Makhzoum from his Ganfouda grave after 5 days of his death and put his body on public display, in another heinous crime by the army, which is overpowered by gangs and radical Salafist groups.

Makhzoum was killed on March 14 during clashes in the 12 Buildings block in Ganfouda. On Saturday, the so-called LNA took control of the buildings after fighters of Benghazi Shura Council broke their siege and managed to escape with the families in an operation that left more than 20 of them dead and others prisoners.

Later, Haftar’s forces exhumed the body of Jalal Makhzoum and paraded with him through the streets before hanging him outside Saiga Camp for public display, in violation of all Islamic teachings and international human rights laws.


The heinous crime has sparked social media outrage and condemnation with many activists likening it to ISIS crimes. It was committed by notorious militant Mahmoud Al-Wirfalli, who receives instructions from radical Salafist scholars including Abdul-Fittah Ben Ghalboon. (Photo Below).
