The office of so-called "Fight against Cyber Terrorism" has been opened in the city of Benghazi.

The director of the office, Miftah Al-Baraasi, said that the mission of the office is to monitor the social networking pages that broadcast "poison of terrorism", and which fight Dignity Operation.

Activists fear that the step will further stifle the already degraded freedoms in the eastern region, and give an excuse for Khalifa Haftar to suppress his political opponent on the pretext of being cyber terrorists.
