The former president of the High Council of State (PC), Abdulrahman Al-Suwehli said that Khalifa Haftar will be the one who will pay for the war he waged on the western region and not those who were lured into this fight, in reference to the followers of so-called Dignity Operation.

"This time it must be an all-out battle to cut off the return to authoritarianism from the root," Suwehli said on Facebook, rejecting international statements urging calm from countries involved in shedding the blood of Libyans, such as France and Abu Dhabi.

"Opportunists will not be allowed to exploit such events and trade in the sacrifices of men, as they have been doing continuously for the past period, in order to stay in the scene and continue to infiltrate in the state," Al-Suwehli added.
