HCS member Al-Shater: Haftar is a traitor
Member of the High Council of State (HCS) Abdul Rahman Al-Shater said that warlord Khalifa Haftar's demonstration of power by using foreign aircraft to seize power in Libya is treason against the nation that rejects autocracy.
"The will of the Libyan people will prevail in the end and Haftar will be labelled as a traitor," Al-Shater tweeted.
He stressed that the countries supporting him are making the mistake of their lives in terms of relations between states, accusing Saudi Arabia of exporting terrorist ideology and political money to create chaos in Libya.
He also accused the UAE of conspiring against Libya, under the pretext of fighting terrorism, while its warplanes are taking the lives of civilians, all over the Libyan territory, as he put it.
