Defend Benghazi Brigades said Al-Barghathi hailing of France’s intervention is bizarre
Defend Benghazi Brigades (DBB) said the statement of the defense minister-designate of the UN-proposed government, Mihdi Al-Barghathi, is odd as he has hailed the French intervention in Libya and has ignored the protests that went out in many cities in Libya denouncing the intervention.
“We find it strange that Al-Barghathi has the guts to say he welcomes the French intervention in Libya and ignores the people’s outrage about it.” The DBB elaborated.
The DBB also added in a statement Sunday that the attempt to discredit their forces and classify them as IS groups or Al-Qaeda ones or even calling them terrorists and extremists is very cliché and a well-known lie to all Libyans.
“Are those who strife to go back home terrorists, especially after being kicked out of it by force? Or are they the ones who kidnap Benghazi’s youth and throw them in prisons and commit mass killings without trial?” The DBB wondered.
The UN-proposed government supports Haftar and this is clear in Al-Barghathi’s consideration of Benghazi’s battle as the “decisive battle” and their revolutionaries as “terrorists”, the DBB statement added, refuting Al-Barghathi’s claims that their forces killed the captives saying that they released all of them and they vouched for the DBB forces’ good manners.
