46 members of the House of Representatives (HoR) declared their support for the military campaign launched by Haftar on Tripoli.

"The HoR is the one who gave legitimacy to the armed forces to fight terrorism and rid the country of the militias," the HoR members said in a statement.

The members called on the international community, the Security Council and all other actors to delegitimize the Presidential Council (PC) after Fayez Al-Sarraj- the PC's head- chose to take the side of "the terrorist groups" in Tripoli, as they put it.

Earlier, 49 members of the House of Representatives condemned the treacherous attack on Tripoli and its environs, calling for an immediate ceasefire and the return of the attacking force to its headquarters.
