Ganunu: The Liberation of Sirte and Al-Jufrah is more essential than ever
The Libyan Army Spokesman, Brigadier Mohamed Ganunu, said that the liberation of the Sirte and Al-Jufrah region from Russian mercenaries and local criminal gangs and tracking them down, wherever they may run to in Libya, has become more imperative than ever.
He went on to say at a press briefing on Saturday, “it is incomprehensible to discuss a ceasefire at a time when foreign mercenaries are occupying Sirte and Al-Jufrah.”
He added, “The foreign mercenaries based in the aforementioned areas, are equipped with weapons provided by countries that support Haftar, the same nations are responsible for the presence of Russian, Syrian and African mercenaries, exercising control over Libyan oil fields as we speak.”
